Engineering & Computing Education

The Department of Engineering and Computing Education is here to help engineering students be successful in their graduate and undergraduate programs. From tutoring to research opportunities, engineering education faculty are here to prepare you to be a well-rounded engineer.

Graduate Programs

Interested in a career in higher education or teaching K–12? Engineering education launches your career to better understand research methods, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods of inquiry. The PhD and MS program offer opportunities that translate to industry, government, and education.

Undergraduate Programs

Rather than start in a specific program like mechanical or chemical engineering, the First-Year Engineering Program (FEP) gives students the flexibility to decide what they want to study later on in their college experience. After a semester or two at UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science, FEP students apply to transition to a major of their choice, a process based on their UC GPA and the courses they have taken.

Other services and resources in the department

Educators teach fundamental courses in engineering, and administrators teach calculus, physics and chemistry to engineering students. Services include:
  • Tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • Advising 
  • Other support services
  • Research opportunities
