Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College offers 4-year undergraduate programs in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. An environmental engineering emphasis is available within the civil engineering major and a computer engineering emphasis is available within the electrical engineering major. Math, science and engineering fundamentals are emphasized the first two years, followed by two years of specialized training in one of the three majors. A strong core curriculum in communications, arts, social sciences and the humanities is provided for all students. Engineering design is integrated throughout the curriculum and is especially emphasized during the final year of each student's program. All courses are taught by faculty, not graduate students, and personalized academic advisement is emphasized. All laboratories are very well equipped and up-to-date, and students often participate with faculty in sophisticated research. Professionalism is fostered through the student chapters of national professional engineering societies and through the student chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Honor Society. Evening graduate programs are offered in civil, electrical, mechanical and systems engineering, environmental science and computer science.
