Programs of study
The College of Engineering, through its disciplines of science, engineering and technology, offers course work leading to the Master of Science and the Doctor of Philosophy.
Master’s degrees are offered by all academic departments in the college.
Doctoral programs in the college typically reflect the areas of academic specialization or focus of the various departments (see individual departmental descriptions in this catalog for specific information). All areas offer challenging programs that provide students with the opportunity to become experts in their chosen fields. A major emphasis in the college is to train graduate students in the fundamentals of engineering and scientific research and to prepare them, especially on the doctoral level, to be critical thinkers who can advance human knowledge through research.
The college is composed of the following six academic departments.
Research interests pursued in the Department of Biomedical Engineering include the following areas: micro and nanotechnology innovations in medicine, drug delivery systems for cancer therapy, biomimetic microenvironments, tissue engineering; smart biomaterials for biomedical implants, bone fixation devices, resorbable stents, blood-barrier dysfunction, implants-tissue interface reactions; BioMEMS, BioNEMS, cell-on-chip, nano-electroporation and transfection; biomedical instrumentation, remote health monitoring, epilepsy seizure detection, exoskeleton for senior citizens.
Research interests in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering include databases, game programming, wired and wireless networks, computer security, cloud security, network security, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, computer systems architecture, collaborative learning, parallel and distributed processing, numerical analyses, wireless communication, image understanding and computer vision, sensor fusion, data mining, computational epidemiology, VLSI design, medical imaging, compilers, algorithm analyses, human factors, cryptography, privacy and software vulnerability management, and bioinformatics.
The research areas in the Department of Electrical Engineering include signal processing, wireless communication, channel modeling and measurement, radar systems, VLSI design and testing, analog and mixed-signal IC design, nano-scale semiconductor device modeling and design, wireless sensor network design, radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems, sensor and sensor interface design, coding theory, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition and multisensor fusion.
Research capabilities in the Department of Engineering Technology include small target visibility, noise cancellation, VLSI design of antenna array, logic circuit design, applications of technology to education, biomedical optics, telemedicine, mechanical behavior of materials for structures and micromechanical systems, control systems, field emissions and corrosion engineering.
Research programs in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering are focused in the areas of advanced functional and structural materials, metallic materials, polymers, electronic materials and devices, ceramics and glass, nanomaterials and nanotechnology, material processing and additive manufacturing, computational materials and materials characterization. The graduate programs emphasize student-centered hands-on multi-disciplinary research with modern world-class equipment and facilities housed in the department.
Research areas within the Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering include novel energy conversion systems for solar and wind energy applications, energy conservation technology for built environment, zero-energy buildings, environmental monitoring and modeling to study urban and regional-scale air quality, biomedical heat transfer, environmentally friendly electronic systems, stress analysis in thin films, fracture and failure of solid materials, nanomaterials, micro- and nano-scale machining, fabrication and characterization.
