The College of Engineering and Computing offers you the chance to change the world

As an engineer or computer scientist you provide solutions to today's most pressing problems. You work on problems from health care to environmentally friendly designs on systems that affect all of us both locally and globally.  Your education takes place at a residential school with nearly all our students living on campus or in town. This means lots of involvement for you in  campus life. Extracurricular involvement is an important part of Miami’s concept of a well-rounded education, as is the liberal arts education core. These aspects complement the more specialized courses in our majors and give students the skills to do well in a rapidly-changing world.
