Description: In the last quarter century, the computer has grown so rapidly in importance that engineering, science, business and industry could not function without it. With this growth, a need has evolved for specialists who can incorporate computers and information into complex industrial processes. The Engineering Systems and Computing program has been conceived to satisfy this need. Graduates from this program will have, in addition to the basic engineering skills, the ability to identify application areas where computer technology represents the optimum solution, specify appropriate software for process control, data reduction and/or expert system implementation and integrate the computer into the overall system application.
