Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

To fulfill varied and changing roles of scientists and engineers, students must learn to appreciate not only the power of technology but also its impact on people. The academic programs of this college are designed to insure that the student achieves technical proficiency and an awareness of the broader scientific and human values under which technologies are developed and applied. Students learn the concepts of creative and disciplined problem-solving that can later be applied to their professional and personal lives. Special initiatives for undergraduates include, for example, research projects under faculty guidance. Programs in arts/engineering, and science, technology and society are also available.
