Our Aerospace Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Software Engineering degree programs are all accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the (Aerospace/Computer/Electrical/Mechanical/Software Engineering) Program Criteria.
In the ABET process, programs are required to create objectives (expectations of our alumni working within industry) and outcomes (expectations of students within or graduating from our programs), and then develop assessment tools to monitor students in the programs to ensure that they are meeting these outcomes.
The College’s vision is to contribute well-prepared professionals for early success in the industry or in graduate school. Our faculty is dedicated to educating engineers for the 21st century.
Our mission is to provide undergraduate education founded on a rigorous, applied treatment of engineering fundamentals coupled with modern engineering tools.
