The computer science and engineering disciplines provide students with excellent career options. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has great information regarding the occupational outlook for students majoring in engineering, computer science, and construction management. All information on this page was gathered from their site. Visit www.bls.gov for more info.

Discipline Overviews

Civil engineers conceive, design, build, supervise, operate, construct, and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment.

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment, such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems, and power generation equipment. Electronics engineers design and develop electronic equipment, including broadcast and communications systems, such as portable music players and Global Positioning System (GPS) devices. A combined electrical and computer degree will prepare students for these roles in addition to roles involving programmable logic controllers, hardware design, software integration, and mechatronics.

Mechanical engineers design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices, including tools, engines, and machines.

Computer science careers can follow the paths of design and construction of communication networks, computer programs, software systems, and security systems and can also branch into robotics.

Construction managers plan, coordinate, budget, and supervise construction projects from start to finish.

Our undergraduate curriculum for these programs prepare students for work in a wide range of industries, including but not limited to design, manufacturing, controls, power production, aerospace, robotics, systems engineering, construction, and management.

Additionally, per industry demands, our programs strive to produce graduates who are creative, inquisitive, analytical, and detail oriented as well as being strong communicators, both orally and in writing.
