Answers to frequently asked questions
A degree in chemical engineering will prepare you for a wide variety of careers related to the environment, advanced and renewable materials, energy conservation, consumer products, health, and biotechnology.
Civil engineers build the infrastructure for modern civilization, in a manner that advances the safety, health, and welfare of the public and improves the environment through the practice of sustainable development.
Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates training in computer science and electronics engineering to enable graduates to develop computer hardware and software.
Computer engineers work in many areas of specialization including information security, communications, and wireless networks, compilers and operating systems, computational science and engineering, mobile computing and distributed systems, computer architecture and parallel processing, computer vision and robotics, embedded systems, integrated circuits, and signal and image processing.
Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the deployment of countless types of electrical systems and electronic devices.
Industrial engineers (IE) improve organized effort by making systems safer, more efficient, and more profitable. Modern IEs can be found in fields including logistics and supply chain, healthcare, manufacturing, consulting, security, finance, technical sales and beyond.
IEs learn how to model and analyze real-world problems from airport security checkpoints to emergency evacuations by breaking down decision-making problems into elegant mathematical models
Material Science & Engineering
Materials scientists and engineers design, develop, and produce both traditional and new advanced materials with diverse applications intended for use in a wide variety of industries.
Mechanical engineers usually focus on matters related, but not limited to, manufacturing, energy, machines, materials, transportation, and design – perhaps a wider range of areas than any other engineering discipline.
