Department Statement

Reach your full potential in the field of engineering and realize the future you envision with an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Engineering Management, and Construction Management from California State University, East Bay. As a graduate of the Bay Area’s latest engineering degree program, you’ll qualify yourself for a high potential career:

Computer Engineers are involved in all aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design, as well as the integration of computer systems into other kinds of systems (a motor vehicle, for example, has a number of subsystems that are computer oriented). Common computer engineering tasks include writing embedded software for real-time microcontrollers, working with sensors, designing mixed signal circuit boards, and designing operating systems.

Industrial Engineers serve an essential need in today’s technical society. As the interface between humans and technology, industrial engineers work to improve the quality and efficiency of the production of goods and services. The depth and caliber of academic preparation required to excel in this field is embodied in CSUEB’s Industrial Engineering curriculum. The Industrial Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, Telephone: (410) 347-7700.

Engineering Management curriculum is distinctive in that it provides a blend of qualitative management and quantitative industrial engineering skills. Courses are offered in engineering, business, computer science and statistics. Students gain theoretical and practical training in how to plan, organize, allocate resources, and direct and control activities that have technological components.

Construction Management goals are to prepare effective managers for public and private construction projects, to prepare the workforce required for the expected increase in the State’s transportation infrastructure improvements, and to enable high school graduates, transfer students and working professionals to assume leadership roles in the construction industry. Special attention is given to working professionals with classes offered mainly at times convenient to students.
