Our programs in Engineering and Computer Science are housed in the Kinsley Engineering Center, located on Grantley Road on our West Campus. The 43,000-square-foot building fosters interactions and cross-disciplinary projects among the four technical majors. The Kinsley Engineering Center is a student-oriented facility containing state-of-the-art laboratories and a large common area where the students from various majors can go to study, interact, work on collaborative research projects or just relax.
Mechanical engineering, the broadest of all engineering disciplines, has long played a key role in adapting scientific knowledge to societal needs. In virtually every sector of our economy, mechanical engineers design machines, processes, and mechanical systems of all types.

Computer Science is the study of algorithms and the issues involved in implementing them. This study includes computer languages and systems; the methods used to develop and specify algorithms; and the theories and models necessary to analyze and understand algorithms, company systems, and their interrelationship.

Tim Garrison, associate professor, physical sciences/mechanical engineering, presented a paper titled "Student Performance Enhancements via an Active, Integrated Engineering Physics course," at the 2014 American Society for Engineering Education's Annual Conference in June. Garrison's paper was selected as one of five best papers out of approximately 1500 presented at the conference, and he was invited to be one of the plenary speakers at the 2015 conference.
