Biocompatibility testing, designing artificial organs and tissues, developing new drug delivery systems, creating innovative medical devices, and enhancing medical imaging techniques are just a few of the ways biomedical engineers improve the health and well-being of others.
From nano-scale composites, pharmaceuticals, plastics, fibers, metals, and ceramics to the development of alternative energy systems, biomedical materials and therapies, and strategies to minimize the environmental impact of technological advancements.
The computer engineering master's degree emphasizes the adoption of design methodology and the application of sophisticated engineering tools to the design and development of computer-integrated systems.
Synthesize science, mathematics, technology, and application-oriented designs into world-class consumer products, timely microprocessors, state-of-the-art computers, advanced electronic components, and much more.
Merge technology, engineering, and science and apply it to practical, industrial, and business applications to become a leader in your field. In the electrical engineering masters students can customize a specialty of their choosing while working closely with electrical engineering faculty in a contemporary, applied research area.
The doctorate program in engineering prepares the next generation of engineering leaders to tackle some of the most daunting and complex problems facing our society. The program produces engineering graduates who are subject matter experts in a knowledge domain within an engineering discipline. The engineering Ph.D. provides students with the flexibility to become discipline-specific subject matter experts and engineering innovators in an open-architecture environment, fostering intellectual growth along both interdisciplinary pathways and within the bounds of conventional engineering disciplines. With this approach, the program develops world-class researchers who can capitalize on the most promising discoveries and innovations, regardless of their origin within the engineering field, to develop interdisciplinary solutions for real-world challenges.
The master of science in manufacturing leadership is for experienced engineers, business and technical professionals who aspire to high-level positions in operations, supply chain management, and process improvement. The program integrates business and engineering courses with an emphasis on operational excellence, supply chain management, systems thinking, and leadership of teams and organizations. The program is offered fully online or as a blend of online and on-campus courses.
Manufacturing leadership is a focused program developed jointly by the Kate Gleason College of Engineering and Saunders College of Business. Particular emphasis is placed on supply chain management, global manufacturing and operations, lean systems thinking, leadership, and decision making. A capstone project, oriented to the solution of a manufacturing or service management problem or process improvement initiative, enables students to apply new skills and capabilities to the solution of a pressing real-world problem, with significant financial benefit to sponsors. The program can also be taken on a full-time basis, with several courses available on campus. Students may start any term (fall, spring, summer) and complete courses at their own pace.
The manufacturing leadership program's objective is to educate graduates to lead teams and organizations within a manufacturing or service enterprise for successful competition in a complex global economy, through the integration of business and technical skills. The application-oriented program is designed to help experienced professionals move into mid- and senior-level management positions in operations, manufacturing, supply chain management, and process improvement.
