Undergraduate Edition 2019-2020

Department Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering Technology

The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering Technology offers undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering Technology. The department also offers minors in Mathematics, as well as Computer Science. A graduate program leading to a Master of Science degree has been added, with concentrations in Applied Mathematics, Mathematics Education, Community College Teaching, and Remote Sensing. The strong curriculum provides students with a high level of preparation for professional employment, as well as for graduate study, with an emphasis on integrating theory and applications.

Students majoring in the Mathematical Sciences have numerous career opportunities open to them. An undergraduate degree in Mathematics, Computer Science or Engineering Technology establishes an excellent background for graduate studies in many areas such as Mathematics, Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Statistics, Engineering, Operations Research, and Economics, etc. Those who are planning to receive a license to teach high school and/or middle school Mathematics must have a minor in Secondary Education.

The department faculty members have diverse research interests. It is recommended that prospective students contact the department as early as possible to discuss an appropriate program of study and plan the sequencing of course requirements. Students majoring in or with a minor in Mathematics or Computer Science are required to have a "C" or better grade in all major requirement courses to meet the departmental standards and approval to be recommended for graduation. The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering Technology offer degrees in the following:

Engineering Technology Program

The mission of Engineering Technology is to empower students to become innovative problem solvers and function effectively in today’s global, rapidly changing, diverse work environment by offering a dynamic curriculum that provides an academic foundation for lifelong learning in the engineering technology field.

The B.S. in Engineering Technology offers concentrations in “Mechanical Engineering Technology”, “Computer Networking Engineering Technology”, and “Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology”, "Robotics and Autonomous Engineering Technology."

Program educational objectives

The B.S. in Engineering Technology program will produce graduates who will:

  1. Actively remain aware of the professional and ethical standards in the field of engineering technology through pursuing or completing an advance degree, professional development course, and/or engineering certifications.
  2. Effectively use communication skills and tools to productively work in a team environment with others of diverse cultural and interdisciplinary backgrounds
  3. Apply fundamental principles of engineering technology to solve complex problems and/or design systems that contribute to the efficiency or effectiveness of their professional organization.
  4. Utilize technology and leadership skills to make sound decisions to implement, manage and integrate systems or processes that comply with professional standards

The Engineering Technology program prepares its graduates with a blend of technical knowledge, theoretical skills, and the hands-on experience necessary to enter professional careers in design, installation, operation, computer, electronics, information technology, mechanical, computer aided manufacturing, control, robotics and automated systems. Engineering Technologists use the principles and theories of engineering, science, and mathematics to solve technical problems in engineering and engineering technology related fields. The successful completion of this program will not only provide better job opportunities, but also prepare students who plan on pursuing graduate studies in the related fields.

The graduates of this program are qualified to obtain professional careers in high-tech industries, government, and business or pursue their graduate degree in the related fields. Graduates can obtain positions such as: Computer Engineer, Network Administrator, Computer System Analyst, Computer and Information System Manager, Network Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Automated Process Engineer, Production Engineer and Plant Supervisor.
