Bachelor in Engineering At the School of Engineering and Computer Science, engineers must develop dual competencies - technical and social. They must understand the principles of science as well as the nature of human needs and behavior and the impact of technology on society. The modern engineer and computer scientist deal with socially relevant matters including pollution, energy resources, sustainability, health care and public transportation systems. They are experts in manufacturing processes, communications systems, medical electronics, the space program and numerous other endeavors that provide citizens of the world with a safer, more enjoyable lifestyle. Majors The mission of the School of Engineering and Computer Science is to provide a superior, student-centered learning environment which emphasizes close faculty-student interaction, experiential education and distinctive research opportunities. Bioengineering This degree incorporates biological science course work with an electrical, computer or mechanical engineering-based curriculum. Options upon graduation are wide-ranging and include immediate work in the bioengineering industry or graduate studies in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and bioengineering. Civil Engineering This degree offers concentrations in environmental, construction, structural and water resources engineering. Our graduates work for private consulting firms, construction companies, large corporations, governmental agencies, research establishments and universities. Computer Engineering Computer engineers apply basic engineering skills - math, physics and electrical circuits - and the fundamentals of computer programming and software design to construct new computer hardware and devices which are built around computers such as automotive controls, cell phones, PDAs and desktop computers. If you love all aspects of computers - hardware and software - then diverse career opportunities await you in manufacturing, transportation, communication, research, education and management. Computer Science The computer science program offers three concentrations: software engineering, networking and computer security, and games and simulation. Computer scientists create algorithms and write computer programs that help other people do their work more efficiently, understand scientific phenomena and make new discoveries that were not possible before the computer age. As a result, industry demand for computer scientists is strong and on the rise. Electrical Engineering This degree includes courses and laboratories in circuits, electronics, digital design, signal processing, microprocessors and electric power. Electrical engineers helped invent a wide range of devices such as the computer, cellular phones, CT scanners, microchips and solar panels. They are employed in a number of sectors, including telecommunications, electric power and energy, semiconductors, computers, biomedical devices and aerospace. Engineering Management This degree prepares students for the planning, organization, scheduling, monitoring, and control of engineering processes through an engineering curriculum incorporating selected course work outside engineering (for example: business, international studies, and economics). Graduates are well prepared for leadership positions in project management, technical marketing, systems engineering, construction management and manufacturing engineering. Engineering Physics This degree is designed to teach practical problem solving from a foundation in physics and mathematics, combined with a basic training in engineering and design. Engineering physicists are often involved in the development of new devices and products using sophisticated physical concepts. Engineering physicists work in areas such as energy conversion, solid state devices, elementary particles, nano-scale structures, optics and electromagnetic radiation. Mechanical Engineering This degree allows majors in mechanical systems (applied mechanics) or energy systems (thermal sciences) to prepare for positions in product development, plant design, machine design, basic and applied research, environmental control, materials and manufacturing, robotics or technical sales. Minors Many students enjoy completing a minor, either for the sake of complementing their major and professional aspirations, or simply for fulfillment. As your personal growth potential is so great while in college, this can be an opportune time to increase the number of tools in your tool chest as much as possible. Computer Science Minor A Minor in Computer Science offered by the Department of Computer Science is designed for students who desire to enhance their skills with a course of study in the development and application of Information Systems. Engineering Management Minor The Minor in Engineering Management is designed for students completing an engineering degree who desire an understanding of management skills. Sustainability Minor A Minor in Sustainability is suggested for students who desire an understanding of sustainability or those who anticipate working for trans-national or development organizations. The interdisciplinary Minor in Sustainability is open to students of all majors. Technology Minor A Minor in Technology is designed to complement a non-engineering degree by adding some exposure to the elements to technology that are shaping the 21st Century. This minor is open to non-engineering students only. Cooperative Education Program Cooperative Education employment enhances a technical degree and stimulates the learning process by relating theory to practice. When students apply what they have learned in the classroom to a working situation, they learn by doing, which increases student motivation. What is Cooperative Education? Cooperative education (Co-op) is a term used in engineering circles to mean, "paid internship." Pacific students accept these positions all across the globe in all types of technical capacities. It is an integral part of the engineering and computer science curriculum at Pacific. Engineering students at Pacific are required to complete seven months of this paid professional practice before graduation. The program is optional for: Bioengineering majors who are following the biomedical path. International students by virtue of their de facto education abroad experiential education. The occasional student who already has equivalent experience. Computer Science majors, but most take advantage of the program anyhow. Students Benefits Pacific's engineering and computer science students receive many benefits from the Co-op Program, including: The faculty like this program, most for its effect in helping students relate theory to practice. This learning-by-doing increases comprehension and retention. Students appreciate the income, which averages $2500 - $3000 per month, helping to defray their education costs upon returning to campus. Students talk much more about how much it helps them to secure permanent employment upon graduation. Nearly every graduating senior reports either, "Yes," or "Maybe" when asked if they could secure an offer of permanent employment with their former co-op employer. We would guess that nearly all would say, "Yes," except that many are planning to pursue their masters first and thus do not know yet. Another major benefit is helping students choose and confirm their major and concentration. Engineering and computer science are such stealth professions that most students going to college do not really know very much about it. Co-op helps them to learn firsthand what their chosen major is, how well they do in it, and how much they like it. Afterwards, they can change their major if they wish, possibly not losing very much time towards their graduation. Other notable benefits include: Exposure to cutting-edge developments within their majors. Increased professional, people, communication, ethical and critical thinking skills. Greater motivation to persevere through their remaining upper-division courses. The Co-op Program also just helps to ease the transition from student to working professional. [-]
