Applications of Computing
The Program in Applications of Computing is an interdisciplinary program designed for students who want to combine the study of computing and computers beyond an introductory level with another academic concentration, but who are not concentrating in computer science.
Architecture and Engineering
The program is intended for students interested in pursuing a career in architectural design or engineering design. The program includes coursework and independent studies in structures and architecture, history of architecture and of structures, and studio design.
Chemical and Biological Engineering
Undergraduate areas of concentration include bioengineering and biotechnology, materials and product engineering, energy and environmental engineering, optimization, dynamics, and information technology, entrepreneurship and management, and science and engineering for new technologies.
The graduate program develops leaders in chemical and biological engineering by conducting research that defines the frontiers of knowledge. We prepare chemical engineers for careers in teaching, research and development, and management in academia, government and industry.View Courses
Civil and Environmental Engineering
The department offers undergraduates five options: architecture and engineering, environmental engineering, geological engineering, structural engineering, and engineering and the liberal arts. The graduate program offers study and research in two areas: mechanics, materials, and structures, and environmental engineering and water resources.View Courses
Computational and Information Science
The graduate certificate in computational and information science offers students comprehensive training in numerical analysis, software engineering, computer science, and statistics and data modeling in ways that promote discovery in the sciences, engineering, and humanities.
Undergraduates learn fundamental concepts of the discipline and to become proficient in the use of advanced computer systems. The plan provides opportunities for study in software systems, algorithms and complexity, machine architecture, computer graphics, programming languages, machine learning, and other core areas of computer science.
The graduate program accepts beginning and advanced students for study and research. The degree programs are sufficiently flexible to adapt to individual plans of study and research.View Courses
Undergraduate students begin with a unifying foundation before studying in an area of specialization which ranges from devices to optoelectronics, to computer architecture and communication technology, to microprocessors. Students may select one of a set of suggested concentrations, or tailor their own in consultation with their faculty adviser to suit special interests.
The graduate program emphasizes forward-looking education and original, cutting-edge research. While addressing fundamental issues and applications, graduate research focuses on current high-growth fields like security, photonics, nanotechnology, quantum computing, biomedical applications, networks and communications, and multicore computer architecture.View Courses
Engineering and Management Systems
The certificate program provides students with tools for the complex decision-making problems that arise in engineering, the sciences, and management. It is aimed at engineering students interested in preparing for careers in management or consulting, students in the liberal arts looking to acquire the analytic tools typically used for careers in corporate or government settings, and students in the sciences interested in a stronger exposure to analytic methods and, potentially, careers in management or public policy.
The program is designed for undergraduate students who want to pursue careers or graduate education in biotechnology or bioengineering. For engineering students, the program offers study in cellular and molecular biology, genetics, physiology, biochemistry and neuroscience. For biological and chemical sciences majors, the program offers study in biotechnology, biomechanics, thermodynamics, control theory, hazardous waste management, electronics, computer graphics and information theory.
The program is directed toward students interested in a fundamental knowledge of physics, together with problem-solving skills and an understanding of engineering. Undergraduates study energy, environment, materials, microelectronics, astronautics, and photonics.
The program aims to supplement undergraduates in their major departments with an understanding and practice in entrepreneurship.View Courses
Geological engineering is the application of science to problems involving the Earth, its physical environment, earth materials, and natural resources. The program prepares students for graduate study or practice in geology, geochemistry, geophysics, oceanography, water resources, engineering and environmental geology, and civil and environmental engineering.
Materials Science and Engineering
The undergraduate program emphasizes the multidisciplinary nature of the study of materials and the engineering application of their properties. It is designed primarily for students in science and engineering departments who are considering careers in materials.View Courses
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The undergraduate program guides students to build fundamental knowledge in key engineering disciplines and develop practical skills in problem-solving and design. The core of the department's curriculum -- solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, dynamics, control systems, materials and applied mathematics -- are combined with the experience of engineering design.
The graduate program defines the frontiers of knowledge in our field by preparing leaders in engineering and applied sciences for careers in academia, industry and government. Our program emphasizes achieving fundamental understanding in a broad range of topics, a deep understanding in a particular area and excellent communications skills.View Courses
Operations Research and Financial Engineering
The undergraduate program brings together coursework in science, mathematics, computing and technology to provide for broad intellectual development suitable for many different types of careers. By choosing from courses in engineering, science, mathematics, economics, public policy, and liberal arts, each student may design a program adapted to his or her particular interests.
The graduate program places a strong emphasis on quantitative methods and mathematical modeling. Students develop a unique set of skills that build upon a solid foundation in probability, statistics and optimization.View Courses
Robotics and Intelligent Systems
The undergraduate program is designed for students interested in pursuing careers or graduate education in automation, intelligent systems, and the understanding of human intelligence from the perspective of neuroscience and computation.
The undergraduate program is designed to broaden understanding in energy resources and their impact on the environment. Students learn to quantitatively analyze, design and develop systems that support sustainable economic growth and environmental harmony, and learn about environmental change from the perspective of engineering, technology, economics and policy.
The program combines coursework, seminars, laboratory experience, field work and practice teaching to become fully prepared and certified to teach successfully at the middle and secondary levels. Participants can earn certification in art, English, mathematics, music, the sciences, social studies and world languages. The program is approved by the New Jersey Department of Education and by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).View Courses
Technology and Society
The undergraduate program is targeted to students, both engineers/scientists and humanists/social-scientists, who are interested in exploring the intersection of society and technology. Programs of study are offered under information technology and energy tracks.
