  • What is engineering and what do engineers do?

    Engineering has been defined in many ways. It is often referred to as the "application of science" because engineers take abstract ideas and build tangible products from them. Another definition is "design under constraint," because to "engineer" a product means to construct it in such a way that it will do exactly what you want it to, without any unexpected consequences.

    Engineers are men and women who create new products. It is estimated that there are over 2 million practicing engineers in the United States. They work in fields such as biomedicine, energy, automotive, aerospace, computers, and many others that require people to create products that didn't exist before.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Electrical Engineering and Computer ScienceComputer ScienceComputer scientists analyze and evaluate software systems and the underlying abstractions upon which they are based.

    They design and implement software systems which are state of the art solutions to a variety of computing problems; this includes problems which are sufficiently complex to require the evaluation of design alternatives and engineering trade-offs.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Electrical Engineering and Computer ScienceComputer EngineeringComputer engineers design and implement computer systems, both hardware and software, which are state of the art solutions to a variety of computing problems. This includes systems which have both a hardware and a software component, whose design requires a well defined interface between the two, and the evaluation of the associated trade-offs.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Electrical Engineering and Computer ScienceElectrical EngineeringElectrical engineers are concerned with signals and systems, computers, electronics (both analog and digital), and semiconductor devices.

    Students are required to develop depth in at least one of the following technical areas: electromagnetics, signals and systems, solid state, computer hardware, computer software, control, and circuits.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Electrical Engineering and Computer ScienceSystems and Control EngineeringSystems and control engineering involves designs complex technological and non-technological systems.

    Problems relating to modeling, decision-making, control, and optimization are studied.

    Some examples of systems problems which are studied include: modeling and analysis of complex biological systems, computer control of industrial plants, developing world models for studying environmental policies, and optimal planning and management in large-scale systems.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Mechanical and Aerospace EngineeringMechanical Engineering Mechanical engineers design, analyze, develop, manufacture and use machines that convert and transmit energy, and which apply energy to the completion of operations beneficial to mankind. Examples include devices for power generation, automobiles, airplanes, agricultural machines, and refrigeration & air conditioning.

    Aerospace EngineeringOnce considered a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering has come into its own. Aerospace engineers design optimum aerodynamics of various sub- and supersonic aircraft, create more efficient and more reliable propulsion systems, and solve problems posed by craft that must pass into and out of the Earth's atmosphere.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Chemical EngineeringTraditionally, chemical engineers are responsible for design and control of large-scale chemical plants for the production of basic chemicals, plastics, and fibers.

    Today's chemical engineers are also involved in food and fertilizer production, synthesis of electronic materials, development of chemical and biochemical sensors, waste recycling, and power generation, including fuel cells.

    Chemical engineers also develop new materials (ceramic composites and electronic materials, for example) as well as biochemicals and pharmaceuticals.

  • Materials Science and EngineeringMaterials Science and Engineering extends from the basic science of materials internal structure to design & evaluation of materials.

    The role of the materials engineer is to understand the science of why materials behave as they do under various conditions; recognize the limits of performance that particular materials can attain; and to know what can be done during manufacture of materials to meet the demands of a given application.

    Materials engineers work to develop new applications of existing materials, new methods of manufacture of materials, and develop new classes of materials.

    All programs (except Engineering Physics and Engineering, undesignated) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • Macromolecular Science and EngineeringMacromolecular Scientists and Engineers develop the newest polymeric materials, which are changing the face of our society.

    These giant molecules are the basis of synthetic materials including plastics, fibers, rubber, films, paints, membranes, and adhesives.

    Polymers are the key components of plastics and fibers, packaging materials, coatings, adhesives, and sealants. New generations of functional polymers are enabling revolutionary advances in electronic and photonic sensors and devices, fuel cells and batteries, and bioprosthetic and drug delivery devices.
