工程

太阳2平台工程项目的理念是基于这样一种认识,即通过解决实际问题的实践来最好地解决专业部分. 工程项目是一个通用的工程学位, 如何让毕业生通过对数学和基于系统的分析的使用和理解进行跨学科的交流, and design effective and innovative solutions to discipline-specific problems. Our goal is to graduate students capable of solving real problems that span multiple 工程 disciplines. This goal is realized through our three main curricular areas of focus (design, 系统, and 工程 science), 以及通过我们对专业实践的重视. We teach a rigorous theoretical and broad background in these three areas of focus. 在这个基础广泛的教育基础上,还有一个专业实践的组成部分, which is realized through hands-on experiences in the classroom throughout the program, research opportunities, 以及我们的大三/大四顶点行业资助的诊所项目.
