Why is Research an important aspect of the College of Engineering & Computing?

  • Research discovers new issues, enhances learning, evaluates knowledge, develops technology.
  • Research processes link learning, critical thinking, development, and innovative strategies.
  • Research fosters professional excellence in faculty.

“Our new Master degrees will be the much needed catalyst for our faculty research and overall scholarship portfolio of the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing.
I envision most of our faculty and a large number of students engaged in research activities framed within these new graduate programs”
