Cullen College of Engineering

The college faculty strives to prepare students for their role as productive members of society by providing a comprehensive education.

Students first master the scientific principles upon which engineering is based and then examine the industrial and social structure that regulates the application of science to community life. Most important, they experience engineering and its creative nature as part of the learning process.

Recipients of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering have many options: employment in industry or government; further education in fields such as engineering, law, medicine, business, sales, management, and more. Engineering is the only undergraduate program that introduces students to such diverse studies as mathematics, pure and applied sciences, engineering sciences, synthesis, systems design, social sciences, and humanities and fine arts.

A comprehensive education is required for engineers. Engineering challenges are more complex, require a greater sophistication of skills, and will affect people even more directly than in the past. Engineers must be able to marshall their skills to grapple with legal, environmental, humanistic, political, social, and economic concerns.

Major issues addressed by engineers include pollution and hazardous waste management, energy resources and enhanced oil recovery, transportation, housing, and product safety. High-tech areas such as superconductivity and space-related research will hold engineers' attention for some time to come. In order to successfully solve the many challenges facing society, engineers must receive an education that informs, stimulates, and provides practical experience. The Cullen College of Engineering provides that education.
