Major in Engineering
The Division of Engineering Programs offers BSc programs in Electrical, Computer (fully ABET accredited) and Mechanical Engineering (awaiting accreditation via first graduates), as well as an MSc program in Electrical Engineering.
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 or/and 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 amazing engineering jobs and/or attain graduate degrees at prestigious universities (see Jobs and Graduate Degrees obtained by our Alumni).
The emphasis of education is in developing design skills through design project-based courses. Most upper division courses include a Design Project. The design experience culminates in a 2-semester Senior Design Project, performed by student teams under faculty supervision. The best projects receive IEEE awards. All projects, as well as laboratory experiments and undergraduate research, are hosted by 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.
Our Student Organizations are very active at mentoring students, networking with peers and alumni, and at outreaching to local schools.
