    Undergraduates learn fundamental concepts of the discipline and to become proficient in the use of advanced computer systems. The plan provides opportunities for study in software systems, 算法和复杂性, 机体系结构, 计算机图形学, 编程语言, 机器学习, and other core areas of 计算机科学.

    The graduate program accepts beginning and advanced students for study and research. The degree programs are sufficiently flexible to adapt to individual plans of study and research.

  • Electrical and Computer 工程

    Undergraduate students begin with a unifying foundation before studying in an area of specialization which ranges from devices to opto电子产品, to computer architecture and communication 技术, 对微处理器. 学生 may select one of a set of suggested concentrations, or tailor their own in consultation with their 教师 adviser to suit special interests.

    The graduate program emphasizes forward-looking education and original, cutting-edge research. While addressing fundamental issues and applications, graduate research focuses on current high-growth fields like security, 光子学, 纳米技术, 量子计算, 生物医学应用, 网络和通讯, and multicore computer architecture. 

  • 工程生物学

    The program is designed for undergraduate students who want to pursue careers or graduate education in bio技术 or bio工程. 工程的学生, the program offers study in cellular and molecular biology, 遗传学, 生理学, 生物化学和神经科学. For biological and chemical 科学s majors, the program offers study in bio技术, 生物力学, 热力学, 控制理论, 危险废物管理, 电子产品, 计算机图形学 and information theory.

  • 工程物理

    The program is directed toward students interested in a fundamental knowledge of physics, together with problem-solving skills and an understanding of 工程. Undergraduates study energy, environment, 材料, micro电子产品, astronautics, and 光子学.

  • 创业

    The program aims to supplement undergraduates in their major departments with an understanding and practice in entrepreneurship.

  • 地质工程

    Geological 工程 is the application of 科学 to problems involving the Earth, 它的物理环境, 地球材料, 和自然资源. The program prepares students for graduate study or practice in geology, 地球化学, 地球物理学, 海洋学, 水资源, 工程 and environmental geology, and civil and 环境工程.

  • 材料科学与工程

    The undergraduate program emphasizes the multidisciplinary nature of the study of 材料 and the 工程 application of their properties. It is designed primarily for students in 科学 and 工程 departments who are considering careers in 材料.

  • Mechanical and Aerospace 工程

    The undergraduate program guides students to build fundamental knowledge in key 工程 disciplines and develop practical skills in problem-solving and design. The core of the department's curriculum -- solid and fluid mechanics, 热力学, 动力学, 控制系统, 材料 and applied 数学 -- are combined with the experience of 工程 design.

    The graduate program defines the frontiers of knowledge in our field by preparing leaders in 工程 and applied 科学s for careers in academia, 行业和政府. Our program emphasizes achieving fundamental understanding in a broad range of topics, a deep understanding in a particular area and excellent communications skills.

  • Operations 研究 and Financial 工程

    The undergraduate program brings together coursework in 科学, 数学, computing and 技术 to provide for broad intellectual development suitable for many different types of careers. By choosing from courses in 工程, 科学, 数学, 经济学, 公共政策, 和文科, each student may design a program adapted to his or her particular interests.

    The graduate program places a strong emphasis on quantitative methods and mathematical modeling. 学生 develop a unique set of skills that build upon a solid foundation in probability, 统计数据和优化.

  • Optimization and Quantitative Decision Science

    The certificate Program in Optimization and Quantitative Decision Science and Optimization (OQDS), formerly the certificate Program in 工程 and Man年龄ment Systems, is focused on developing quantitative skills for optimal decision making in complex and uncertain environments.

  • 机器人与智能系统

    The undergraduate program is designed for students interested in pursuing careers or graduate education in automation, 智能系统, and the understanding of human intelligence from the perspective of neuro科学 and computation.
