About us

College of engineering, Technology, and Computer Science

Enlightening the minds that will improve our tomorrow is what we do.

An education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is all about preparing students to be successful, innovative, and adaptable. In our college, we encourage curiosity and creativity. Leadership skills are learned here. And failures aren’t seen as setbacks—they’re an opportunity to grow, learn, and advance. (After all, Edison had more than a thousand unsuccessful attempts when inventing the light bulb.)
