Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

July 2012 was an exciting moment for the College of Integrated Science and Engineering (CISE). That date marked our beginning and opened a new set of possibilities for applied STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs at JMU. Computer Science, Engineering and Integrated Science and Technology are the constituent departments of CISE and they offer a range of cutting edge programs to educate students for the opportunities of tomorrow. Complementing their strong technical background, our students also focus on the human element of STEM, and the context in which STEM solutions are implanted in our society and around the globe. Our graduates stand ready to take on the challenges facing us now and in the future and they're prepared to use their STEM knowledge and toolkit wisely as they enter a variety of professions. Whether they've majored in Computer Science, Engineering Geographic Science, Integrated Science and Technology, or Intelligence Analysis, our graduates bring a cutting-edge approach to their work. Our engineering program, which aims to be the best engineering program for the world, was founded in 2008 upon contemporary calls for the 21st century engineer, and received ABET accreditation in summer 2013.
