shettyIt is an exciting time to be an engineer or a computer scientist. The basic demand for engineering talent is overtaking supply in the US, as many companies adopt the next generation of technical advances and compete effectively in the global economy. Engineering, Technology and Computer Science are transforming the world in ways never before imagined. I am sure you will agree with me that the advancements made in the previous decades, the pace of change and innovation is now accelerating at an exponential rate.

SEAS graduates are prepared for high-demand careers in engineering and computer science.  They achieve their potential by individualized learning through small classes, mentoring, and close collaboration with faculty and other students, leading to success in engineering board examination. They are exposed to research, design and discovery projects tackling challenging real-world problems and developing innovative solutions important to industry or government.   SEAS graduates are recruited regularly by companies nationwide. SEAS alumni are found in the top management and research leadership of many engineering corporations and hold key positions in federal, state and city agencies and distinguish themselves. Whether you seek professional advancement, immediate entry into a fast-rising career or preparation for graduate study, a bachelor’s degree in engineering or computing from UDC can launch you towards that goal.

We are one of only four Universities in the nation’s capital providing ABET-accredited undergraduate degrees in engineering and computer science as well as graduate degrees in selected areas.  SEAS curriculum focuses on three basic values: technological and scientific competence, balance between theory and practice, consideration of the societal and holistic aspects of engineering.  Here at SEAS, our mission is to prepare professionals and leaders, committed to making their communities, countries, and the world a better place.
