College Departments

All of our seven undergraduate degrees offered are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. These programs are offered through our departments in Aerospace, Civil, Construction and Environmental, Electrical and Computer, and Mechanical Engineering.

The Bachelor of Science degree program in

The Aerospace Engineering Department provides education and training in aerospace engineering principles and state-of-the-art practice that emphasizes problem solving, multidisciplinary team work, and ethical engineering practice.


The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at teaches skills that directly affect the well-being, health, and safety of all citizens as students learn to design and supervise the construction of buildings, dams, transportation systems, and water and waste water facilities. 


The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department teaches our students the latest technologies in communications, digital signal processing, optoelectronics, fiber optics, power electronics, power systems, bioelectronics, digital circuits, VSLI design, controls, multimedia, and computer networks.


The Mechanical Engineering Department provides design-oriented coursework and emphasizes the development of problem-solving skills through hands-on experience in various laboratories, and machine and fabrication shops. Graduates from the Department are well prepared to address contemporary challenges in automation and control, bioengineering, energy and sustainability, novel materials, powder technology, mechanics of materials, robotics, and design and manufacturing.

Additional Programs

International Programs
Study Abroad

We aspire to produce engineers who are both internationally minded and culturally aware with many opportunities to study around the globe. We also welcome hundreds of international students every year from around the globe who are studying for a degree, on exchange programs, or are visiting research scholars.

Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA)

MESA students engage in "high impact" experiences, such as undergraduate research, first year seminar, learning communities and leadership development. The goal of the program is to enhance student engagement and graduate diverse students in the STEM fields.
