Our programs produce highly trained graduates capable of:
- Productive employment as corporate project or research engineers, teachers or researchers in academia, engineering or business managers or even physicians and lawyers
- Effective writing and presentations
- Entrepreneurial initiatives, whether in start-ups or established companies
- High ethical standards
To this end we have assembled the full array of engineering academics/departments, a variety of degree paths with full-time and part-time options, innovative research opportunities, cross-disciplinary institutes and highly focused centers from which students may choose. Our programs are further enriched by many corporate and government collaborations in which students may participate.
Students interested in protecting people and the environment, conducting computer simulations, designing systems, creating products, and developing fire-safe materials can all pursue their interests by earning a B.S. and working in fire protection engineering.
Students in this program receive a strong engineering education that has a solid emphasis on the fundamental properties and structure of materials, combined with the application and design of advanced materials for a wide range of engineering problems.
