PURPOSE
The School of Engineering functions with the purpose of teaching Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills critical for impacting computing and technology-related disciplines in tomorrow’s world. Enhanced in the fall of 2007, the School has the long-term vision of creating and maintaining nationally recognized technology-related degrees, centers, institutes, and initiatives in education, research, training, and missions so that our Christ-centered graduates can have the greatest impact on tomorrow’s world.

The School offers six degrees and two minors that provide students with the skills, knowledge, and understanding of information technology necessary for impacting tomorrow’s socio-technological culture.

PROGRAM ACCREDITATION
The Bachelor of Science degree programs in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Industrial and Systems Engineering have received accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science has received accreditation from the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

ABET is the recognized accrediting agency for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.  ABET accreditation demonstrates a program’s commitment to providing its students with a quality education.


Engineering Programs

Certain degrees within the School of Engineering require specific technical electives be completed as part of the degree.  The intent of the technical electives is to enhance (i.e. deepen and/or broaden) the scientific, mathematical, technological, or engineering knowledge or experience of the student in his or her career potential and development.

ENGINEERING PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES
The student will be able to:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability;
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams;
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;
  7. An ability to communicate effectively;
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning;
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues; and
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
