College of Engineering — Elective Areas

Computer Engineering

Computer engineering has now come of age. For a quarter of a century it has grown into an area of study quite apart from its initial position as a subdiscipline of electrical engineering. Even within computer engineering, the state of the art is rapidly changing. A working professional has to keep abreast of technological innovations and discoveries to perform effectively in today’s marketplace. This curriculum is continuously updated to bring in the latest advancements covered in its vast span. Click here to view Computer Engineering courses.

Computer Science

This Bachelor’s program deepens a student’s understanding of the field of computing, allowing the graduate to apply his/her knowledge to specific, constrained problems and thereby to produce solutions. The introductory courses provide strong foundation and allow the student to function effectively in a field that has an unusually high rate of change in its technology and a relatively gradual rate of growth in its theory. Finally, the program provides an environment in which the student is able to maintain currency with recent technological and theoretical developments. Click here to view Computer Science courses.

Electrical Engineering

The state of the art in engineering changes so rapidly that it is imperative for today’s engineer to be professionally well equipped; especially the working professional whose academic experience has virtually outlived its usefulness. This area of study offers ample opportunities for such an individual to accelerate his/her technological knowledge. The curriculum is continuously updated to bring in the latest advancements in electronics, control systems, communications, and allied areas. Click here to view Electrical Engineering courses.

Environmental Engineering

Environmental change and deterioration are now widely recognized as major challenges facing the world. Multi-disciplinary aspects of environmental engineering are the basis for analyzing and understanding air pollution control and global climate change; water and wastewater treatment; groundwater contamination; hazardous waste; risk assessment; resource recovery; qualitative and quantitative analysis of sources of pollutants; and treatment and reduction processes.
Electives emphasize the theory, principles, and practices related to engineering solutions of environmental problems and are suitable both for a professional career and for advanced research. Click here to view Environmental Engineering courses.

Mechanical Engineering

Many of the technological advances we take for granted today have been designed by mechanical engineers. For example, the analysis and design of automobiles, heating and air-conditioning systems, airplanes, space vehicles, robots, and computer disk drives all require the work of mechanical engineers.
CNU’s Mechanical Engineering elective areas include courses that provide a solid foundation for both the mid-career professional and the young high school graduate, with sufficient flexibility to allow for concentrated study in the student’s area of interest.
