Engineering and Computer Science

You’re a builder, a creator, someone who likes to solve problems and create solutions. You're invited to help design and build products and machines that make the world work.

Hands-on learning isn’t just a goal in our department — it’s at the core of everything we do. Want to help design and build a racecar? How about work on a functioning robot? Even in your first semester, you’ll be getting your hands dirty in Engineering Practice and Design Studio, where Computer Aided Design, the machine shop, and electronics instruction is introduced and you’ll already get to work on building projects. Our classes are rigorous, but you’ll also find that our students have as much fun working on projects as anyone on campus.

Once you graduate, you can go into the workforce knowing you’ve got the kinds of practical and technical knowledge that employers relish.
