The Engineering & Design Department, in the College of Science and Engineering offers students four Bachelor of Science degrees: Electrical & Computer Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Plastics & Composites Engineering, and Industrial Design. These programs place an emphasis on practical laboratory experiences, in addition to theoretical course work. Each program’s curriculum is designed with input from strong industrial advisory committees to prepare students for professional positions in industry.
At the onset of the global pandemic, our students had to quickly adapt to remote learning, including limited lab time and online lectures. They have shown remarkable flexibility changing their schedules, projects, and learning modes to keep with our rigorous curriculum. Costs for materials have subsequently increased due to the need to mail materials, purchase software, and hold extended lab hours.
