Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Engineering and Computer Science program undergraduate and graduate students come from all over the nation and the world. Freshman engineering students take the common first year program, which introduces design concepts from the first semester and emphasizes multi-disciplinary team approach. In their second year, engineering students choose a major and are assigned to a faculty adviser in their department of major. The Computer Science undergraduate degree program aims to provide all graduates with an understanding of the theory and practice of automating the representation, storage and processing of information. Program provides flexibility, so that graduates will have the ability to work within various areas of Computer Science and to work across other disciplines. The Watson School laboratory facilities are excellent. There is a strong connection with the local high-tech industry. Extensive services are provided by Career & Alumni Connections staff to aid in student's professional development and internship/full-time job search. We have strong partnerships with select universities around the world providing exposure to global perspectives, both in and out of the classroom, including opportunities to work and study abroad with select organizations. We have superior quality of faculty research in electronics packaging, energy efficient systems, health systems and many other areas recognized nationally. A wide variety of funding is available to support graduate students during their studies. NSF funded Alliance for Minority Participation (AMP) grant benefits under-represented minorities in Science, Engineering and Mathematics programs.
