Majors

Using the Global Miami Plan for Liberal Education as a base, each CEC program adds specialized content, appropriate professional courses and integrates experience in laboratory and potentially field settings. We have 10 majors to choose from in the engineering and computing disciplines.

Chemical, Paper, and Biomedical Engineering

Chemical, Paper, and Biomedical Engineering

Everything—every process, every material we use, every medicine we take—depends upon a chemical reaction. Chemical Engineers create products and processes in areas as diverse as pharmaceuticals, energy, environment, and pulp and paper science. Biomedical Engineers work in similar areas developing engineering solutions for healthcare-related problems and processes.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a major in:

Computer Science and Software Engineering

Computer Science and Software Engineering

Today, computers are in everything, everywhere. This fact is making computer scientists and software engineers indispensable because they are the ones leading the way in developing the next generation systems of mobile apps, virtual reality software, and computational biological analysis. They seek to understand society's needs, and once they do, they create software systems that make a difference for society. As more of the world runs on software, the need for these people will only continue to grow.

Bachelor of Science in:

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical and Computer Engineering

From designing the circuits in the technology we all use throughout the day to developing the energy smart grid these devices rely on, we all depend on electrical engineers. If a product is powered by or produces electricity, chances are an electrical or computer engineer developed it. Electrical and computer engineers combine electrical engineering and computing to design technologies as diverse as robots, cell phones, GPS devices, and computers.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a major in:

Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

In one of the broadest engineering disciplines, mechanical and manufacturing engineers research, develop, analyze, design, manufacture, and test a wide range of tools and systems. From developing sensors to designing cars, aircraft, and everything in between, these engineers are the minds behind most of the things we depend on every day.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a major in:

Interdisciplinary Engineering Programs

Interdisciplinary Engineering Programs

The College of Engineering and Computing has unique programs that combine several disciplines to produce graduates who are grounded in engineering fundamentals but apply their education in areas beyond traditional engineering positions.

Students who major in Engineering Management combine an engineering and liberal education foundation with a business or entrepreneurship core and depth in an engineering concentration. Engineering Management graduates are prepared to integrate their business and engineering expertise to address the complex challenges facing industry and society in today's world.

Our General Engineering program provides a rigorous foundation in engineering concepts and problem-solving that prepares students for advanced work in a wide variety of fields such as law, business, and medicine. This major is no longer available for students matriculating in fall 2020 or later.

Miami's Robotics Engineering program equips students to meet the increasing demand for intelligent automation in a rapidly evolving marketplace. Students receive training and hands-on experience in the fundamentals of Electrical, Computer, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as Computer Science. Combined with Miami's strong core in the liberal arts, Robotics Engineering graduates are prepared to be leaders in the dynamic workplace of the future.

Accredited programs in the College of Engineering and Computing

For engineering and computing programs, the primary accrediting body is ABET, Inc. ABET is a specialized accrediting organization that accredits degree programs (majors), not coursework, degrees, curricula, departments, colleges, or universities. See the ABET website, https://www.abet.org for more information about the organization and why ABET accreditation matters.

The following undergraduate programs in the College of Engineering and Computing are accredited. More information on a specific program in the College of Engineering and Computing can be found on each individual major's webpage.
