Engineering, Computer and Information Systems

Stop for a moment and take a look around you. An engineer had a hand in almost everything you see: the cell phone and the refrigerator, your microwavable lunch (as well as the plant where it was made), the silver speck of the airliner silently passing five miles overhead. And consider the computer. You use it to learn, to e-mail friends, to play games, to network and to gather information. Computer scientists, computer engineers, and system and software programmers were involved in everything you do with your computer.
