Our highly-qualified and diverse faculty is committed to excellence in teaching. The majority of our faculty members are active in research in their own field of expertise and/or in engineering education.
Our Mission, Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes aim to the success of our graduates. Most of our graduates are able to obtain successful engineering jobs and/or attain graduate degrees at prestigious universities.
The emphasis of education is on developing design skills through design project-based courses. Most upper division courses include a design project. The design experience culminates in a two-semester Senior Design Project, performed by student teams, under faculty supervision. All projects, as well as laboratory experiments and undergraduate research, are done in state-of-the-art laboratories.
A highly qualified Engineering Advisory Board (EAB) help us generate realistic, industry-based Senior Design Projects. They also increase the internship opportunities for our students.
