Throughout a four-year curriculum, Masters students can earn college credits while they learn about the engineering design process and the common approach to solving engineering problems. Through individual and collaborative hands-on activities and a project-based learning pedagogy, students solve open-ended problems that require planning, documentation, communication and other advanced professional skills.
Students learn technical representation and documentation of design solutions according to accepted technical standards, and use current 3-D design and modeling software to represent and communicate solutions. In addition, our students learn to develop computational methods that are commonly used in engineering, including statistical analysis and mathematical modeling.
Masters’ engineering curriculum was developed through a partnership with Project Lead the Way, the nation’s leading provider of Science,Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs for schools, and the Rochester Institute of Technology. The curriculum is aligned with Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards and International Society for Technology in Education Standards.
Through the partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology, students earn college credits.
The four-course sequence focuses on Computer Systems and Software Engineering:
• Introduction to Engineering Design
• Principles of Engineering
• Computer Science Principles
• Computer Science Applications
