Biomedical Engineering combines biology and medicine with engineering to advance healthcare through the
creation of innovative devices and procedures. Biomedical engineering is the most rapidly growing field in
engineering.

Biomedical Engineers collaborate with scientists, other engineers, and practicing physicians on projects such as:
      Orthopedic and dental implants        Cardiovascular devices and diagnostics
      Artificial organs                     Analytical and diagnostic biosensors
      Drug delivery devices                 Biomedical imaging techniques

Students with a degree in Biomedical Engineering may pursue careers as:
       R&D Design Engineers                Quality Control Engineers
       Research and Test Engineers         Technical Support Engineers
       Regulatory Specialists              Sales Engineers


Computer Engineering graduates will be able to analyze and design software, hardware, and system-
integration aspects of computer based systems.

Opportunity to perform research in field such as:
      Hardware Engineering                   Computer Networks
      Software Engineering                   Image Processing
      Computer Design                        Multi-Media Systems
      Artificial Intelligence

Computer Engineering Technology focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering, aimed at
preparing graduates for practice in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement,
industrial practices, and engineering operational functions.

The courses cover both software development and interfacing with hardware. Graduates will be able to control
the function of any electronic device using a PC, microprocessor, or programmable logic device.

Areas of study include:
       Data Acquisition Systems
       Network Systems
       Operating Systems
       Embedded Systems
Electronics Engineering Technology focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering, aimed at
preparing graduates for practice in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement,
industrial practices, and engineering operational functions.

The courses cover circuit design, industrial controls, microwave technology, and satellite communication.
Graduates will be prepared to work in the fields of digital communications and manufacturing/distribution
automation.

Areas of study include:
       Antenna Design
       Motor Controls
       Programmable Logic Controllers
       Application of Amplifiers, Filters, and Oscillators
       Application of Solid State Devices

Manufacturing Engineering Technology focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering, aimed at
preparing graduates for practice in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement,
industrial practices, and engineering operational functions.

The courses will cover the conversion of raw material into a final product and how to automate work flow while
improving the quality of the product. Graduates will be prepared to implement strategies associated with Lean
Manufacturing practices, product design for manufacture, and automation of distribution systems.

Areas of study include:
       Solid Modeling                 CNC Programming
       Fixture Design                 Material Handling Systems
       Facility Design                Manufacturing Processes

Mechanical Engineering majors have a strong foundation in mathematics, physical sciences, and engineering
sciences, which lead to a series of synthesis and design courses. These require the student to apply material
learned in foundation courses to practical design problems in various areas. The laboratory courses are
designed to develop the student’s knowledge base with a hands-on learning experience.

Civil Engineering students are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to identify and solve the
technical problems of society in a practical and ethical way. The program objectives are to (1) produce civil
engineers who can assume technical and managerial leadership roles in the planning, design, construction,
operation, and maintenance of our nation's infrastructure; (2) provide lifelong learning opportunities for civil
engineering practitioners in the region; and (3) assist local government and industry in the solution of their
technical problems while providing practical experience for our students.

Students with a degree in Civil Engineering may work in a variety of areas including environmental,
geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources. They are employed by municipalities and other
government agencies, such as the Army Corps of Engineers, The Tennessee Department of Transportation, and
the City of Memphis.
