Our Mission
  • To enrich the overall educational experience
    through exposure to the humanities and social
    sciences.
  • To provide opportunities for students to acquire
    practical engineering experience in industry
    through the Engineering Industry Internship
    Program (IIP)
  • To provide a broad and well-rounded education in
    the rapidly evolving areas of Electrical,
    Computer, and Software Engineering.
  • To provide students with a thorough understanding
    of the core material needed in their chosen
    areas.

Future of Software Eng.
  • Devices in automobiles, airplanes, and power
    plants are being replaced by software components!
  • Software is used in medical devices,
    transportation systems, and financial systems to
    automate critical tasks
  • Scientists and business researchers use software
    to sift through data warehouses and to identify
    pertinent facts and trends.
  • Banking, insurance, telecommunications, and other
    service industries use software to automate and
    personalize the services they offer to their
    customers.

Developing these systems demand for Software
Engineers who have the knowledge and expertise
These systems are very complex!
