Electrical engineers are involved in many large-scale multidisciplinary projects in aerospace, automobiles, computer systems, construction, communications, instrumentation, health services and other areas. The Electrical Engineering program provides students with the mathematics, science, management, engineering and applications skills needed to work in various industries designing and producing electrical and electronic devices, systems and services.
The Electrical Engineering program includes three concentrations:
The Computer Engineering concentration is separately accredited.
Industrial engineers are charged with figuring out the best way to do things. Whether the end product is an automobile, computer or a transportation system, industrial engineers, with their “systems focus,” are always called upon to analyze and improve complex systems. The system-wide view and the people-oriented, problem-solving characteristic are distinctive features of industrial engineers that set them apart from other traditional engineering professions. The Industrial Engineering program provides students with a diverse background incorporating many fields of study.
Manufacturing Engineering generally deals with different practices of manufacturing, the research and development of tools, processes, machines and equipment. It also includes the integration of different facilities and the systems for producing quality products with the application of physics and mathematics and the study of manufacturing systems.
The Manufacturing Engineering program has three concentrations:
The Master of Science, Major in Engineering degree provides a practical, industry-driven focus via a long-term, targeted technical project or thesis related to real-world engineering applications. Projects are conducted in partnership with local industries, and may involve off-campus collaborations.
Students confront a large, open-ended problem, perform detailed research on the problem, develop various solutions, choose and implement the best solution, validate their choice and communicate the process to professional colleagues, executives and customers.
This cross-disciplinary view of high-level engineering topics combined with important non-engineering expertise blends several components into a program that is extremely well-received by industrial partners.
