Science, Engineering, & Technology

There are roughly 8.3 million jobs in science, engineering, and technology, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics—jobs that offer workers an average 26 percent higher salary than all other occupations.

Our degree programs prepare students to be leaders and innovators in those high-demand fields and cover a range of industries, from computer science and engineering management to biological science and energy systems. Here is a sampling of what you can enroll in:

Overview Objectives
Bachelor of Science in Biological Science This program is designed for students who wish to pursue a science-based career or continue their education by obtaining a graduate degree in a health- or science-related field. This integrated program provides you with a strong foundation in biology and chemistry, and includes core classes in pre-calculus, physics, biology, microbiology, ecology, genetics and molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, chemical principles, organic chemistry, and analytical chemistry. You can tailor your learning experience by choosing from electives in biotechnology; immunology; genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics; and quality control and validation issues. Demonstrate understanding of biological chemistry, cellular processes, genetic inheritance, organismal form and function, and evolution; apply the scientific method of inquiry and experimentation and demonstrate understanding of biological mechanisms behind human health and broader environmental interactions; analyze, differentiate, and incorporate hypotheses, controls, dependent variables, and independent variables into scientific problems; and explicate and present the relevancy of biological research and knowledge from local, national, and global perspectives.
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology This focused bachelor’s degree provides students with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and analytical tools and techniques to become technologists supporting the design, implementation, integration, analysis, testing, and support of electronic circuits and electrical systems that are critical to the achievement of enterprise, project, research, and business goals. Our program includes courses in mathematics, physics, electric circuit theory, analog and digital circuits and systems, power circuits and systems, and electric circuit and system analysis. Specializations are available in analog systems, digital and embedded systems, electro-mechanical systems, and power and alternative energy systems. Address and solve complex and broadly defined engineering problems related to your discipline and field of specialization; work as team members, show leadership, and communicate technical concepts and ideas effectively; manifest a high level of professional integrity, and make ethical decisions that will have a positive impact on the organization and society; and embrace and practice lifelong learning, continue personal growth, and professional self-improvement.
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Our program provides students with the opportunity to develop strengths in the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and management of modern information technology systems. Courses cover the critical technology areas of programming for traditional, Web, and mobile applications, and for networking, database, and information security. This provides the breadth of knowledge needed to develop, maintain, and support modern applications. In addition, the curriculum includes courses focused on key business areas needed to integrate and manage technology and technology projects in the workplace. Demonstrate: problem-solving abilities that utilize a range of information and communications technologies; an ability to use current computing tools and technologies to design and implement a systems component or process that meets requirements; the ability to communicate with a range of groups and individuals to develop a common understanding of the impact of information technology solution approaches; and the ability to analyze ethical, legal, and social impacts of information technologies in a societal and global business environment.
Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics Our Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics helps you stay current and competitive in your future career. It is an interdisciplinary program in which you build core knowledge in data mining, analysis, and the methods to communicate results in a meaningful way—critical skills for data-driven decision-making in any discipline. Gain foundational knowledge in data science, including data management, machine learning, data mining, statistics, and visualizing and communicating data.


Master of Science in Computer Science Our Master of Science in Computer Science is designed for experienced professionals seeking to enhance their knowledge and expand their technology leadership responsibilities in organizations that design, develop, market, or utilize computing systems. The program combines both computing and important application domains—enabling you to increase your broad-based knowledge in the field while focusing on one curricular concentration selected from a range of options, including artificial intelligence, programming languages, software engineering, database management, networks and security. Exhibit proficiency in the design, implementation and testing of software; Demonstrate skills and experience working in small teams; Apply algorithmic and theoretical computer-science principles to solve computing problems from a variety of application areas; Demonstrate the ability to learn and develop competencies in specialized or emerging computer science fields.
Master of Science in Energy Systems Some of the most pressing global issues we face today are related to energy resources, conservation, and the effects of energy production and increasing worldwide demand. As a result, professionals with knowledge in the development of greener ways to produce and utilize energy in ways that are both sustainable and marketable are in great demand. Our program prepares you to lead efforts in the planning and implementation of new energy generation investments, realize energy efficiency improvements, and participate in environmental markets. Educate students in current and future energy systems technologies; integrate energy-related technologies with economic and financial considerations; and develop leadership and decision-making skills to implement energy systems in either the private or public sectors of the global market.
Master of Science in Engineering Management The program bridges the gaps between the fields of engineering, technology, and business with a focus on the art and the science of planning, organizing, allocating, directing, and controlling the activities and resources of organizations engaged in engineering activities and technology development. An interdisciplinary curriculum prepares you with the theoretical, quantitative, and analytical skills and tools you’ll need to take a leadership position in engineering management and address complex business challenges with innovative, practical, effective solutions. Explore human, mathematical, entrepreneurial, managerial, and engineering aspects of project management; evaluate economic modeling and analysis techniques for developing practical, cost effective solutions to engineering problems; understand the fundamental concepts of probability; and investigate the theory, computation, and application of deterministic models to represent industrial operations.
