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
