College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Solid Theory with a Hands-On Approach:

The School of Engineering at the University of Bridgeport (UB) serves as an educational resource in the sciences, engineering, technology, and design fields. We provide outstanding educational opportunities to students, the companies that hire them, and various other institutions in Bridgeport and the surrounding region, the United States, and all parts of the world.

UB is a 21st-century, high-tech hub and learning center for people who want to master the latest technologies. It also serves as a research and development think tank for new ventures in the emerging world of e-commerce and computer-aided solutions.

The School of Engineering at the University of Bridgeport is the only school in Fairfield County, Connecticut, to offer accredited master�s and Ph.D. programs in computer science and computer engineering. In addition, we offer an ABET-accredited bachelor�s degree in computer and electrical engineering and a B.S. degree in computer science and mechanical engineering. Course offerings combine theory with practical, hands-on experience, using the most recent cutting-edge technologies, from robotics and automation, micro and nano electro-mechanical systems to network applications and software engineering.

Days and evenings, part-time and full-time courses are offered at the main campus in Bridgeport and also via on-line distance learning. The distance learning programs in Computer Science and Technology Management are unique. No other university in the greater metropolitan area offers Master of Science degrees in Engineering or in Computer Science via distance learning.

Our goal is to give students the skills and tools they will need to hit the ground running in the constantly changing technology and
e-commerce based "flat" world.

The world may be shrinking, but opportunities are growing in engineering. The University of Bridgeport�s School of Engineering is uniquely qualified to launch students into the forefront of the new technology-driven workplace. We are both an education provider and a global knowledge resource for students and companies all over the world, focusing on design, engineering, and technical project management and all the while promoting creativity and emphasizing a team approach to problem solving.

We offer master�s degree programs in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Technology Management, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and the Ph.D. programs in Computer Science and Engineering and Technology Management.

Programs in these areas are highly interdisciplinary, allowing students to select courses across all six curricula. We have engineered our programs around students. Courses are conveniently scheduled in day and evening formats and via distance learning. Our goal is to provide students with the tools and skills to design their future and engineer their success.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
