Future Students

Engineering is the application of mathematics and science to develop products, processes, or systems that positively impact people’s lives.

Engineers turn ideas into reality. Engineers design products, build machinery, design and build factories to produce the products, discover new materials, use new materials in product development, and connect the world via highways, bridges, tunnels, and internet. Engineers also test and improve products, processes, and systems. They work closely with scientists in applying the new discoveries to improve products, processes, and systems to benefit the humankind.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we are offering virtual zoom meetings with faculty, staff, and students, so that prospective students can learn more about our programs.  Please email to schedule a meeting.
