The College of Engineering and Computer Science offers eight undergraduate  bachelor of science degree programs to prepare students for professional careers. All eight of the programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).  The college also offers an undergraduate bachelor of arts degree program in computer science. The programs of study are regularly updated, so students can take advantage of the latest technological advances.

The college is committed to providing an outstanding professional education to its students. This is accomplished by excellence in teaching, research, and service and by collaborating with business and industry. As part of its commitment to collaborating with industry, the college is dedicated to developing programs important to the region and to making its programs and courses available to part-time and working students.

The undergraduate programs are intended to produce engineers and computer scientists prepared for entry into professional practice or graduate study. The programs provide an understanding of basic science and engineering fundamentals, as well as modern professional practice, and also provide good, practical, and hands-on experience obtained from a strong laboratory program and real world problem solving. In particular, the college graduates will have

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering and science problems as appropriate to the discipline
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
  • an ability to use techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for professional practice
  • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • an ability to communicate effectively
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering and scientific solutions in a global and societal context
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning.
The college offers master's degrees in engineering and computer science. The college also offers a Ph.D. program in engineering and a Ph.D. program in computer science and engineering.

Modern laboratory facilities provide ample equipment for instructional support and research in a number of areas. The college manages and maintains a number of computer systems and laboratories that are available to students. These include Compaq servers, Silicon Graphics (SGI) servers, Sun Microsystems servers, and SGI and Sun workstations as well as numerous networked PCs. Access is also available to the Ohio Supercomputer via the Ohio Academic and Research Network (OARNET) and Internet2.
