The Department prides itself on offering
a solid, rigorous course of study at all levels. The
students also benefit from the care and concern of the faculty,
who develop strong, personal relationships with each student.
These relationships are fostered by small class sizes, which
allow for one-on-one interactions. Class sizes are never
larger than 24 students in a class, allowing for one-on-one
interactions between students and teachers.
Small class sizes means that the Professor will get to
know YOU !
First class research performed along side of an expert
faculty member provides students with a unique opportunity
to further advance their education and their careers!
Student education is strengthend further
through participation in research. On both the graduate
and undergraduate level, students perform high quality research
under the direct guidance of a faculty member who is an expert
in his or her field. This unique research environment
provides the student with valuable experience which is highly
prized in industry. Most students graduate with at least
one research publication or presentation to their credit.
