  • Computer Engineering
    Computer Engineering is a rapidly changing field that covers a wide range of topics concerned with the design, implementation and programming of computers and digital systems. Computer engineers develop integrated hardware and software systems and apply these to the creative solution of problems in government and business. These solutions are key enablers to our economic development and social welfare. A sample of the range of solutions created by Computer Engineers include: industrial and military control systems, database management systems, health care information systems, networked systems, end-user embedded computer controlled products, and computer-aided design tools to automate and leverage human performance in many other disciplines.

    Electrical Engineering
    Our society is increasingly dependent on the generation and distribution of energy in the form of electricity, and continues to develop at an accelerated pace electronic communication devices and computers designed to capture, create, process, transform, and distribute information. Electrical Engineering is one of the disciplines supporting the development and operation of this key infrastructure. It has evolved from the study of fundamental electrical principles to encompass sophisticated communication and computation techniques.

    Computer Science
    Today, the field of computer science is one of the most popular academic disciplines in universities across the nation. Computer Scientists build computer-aided design tools, manage information technology enterprises, build business information systems (including banking and automotive systems), build healthcare information systems, design and support networks such as wide area networks and cellular telephony, and design end-user embedded computer-controlled products and systems such as smart cards and vision recognition systems.
