The College of Engineering and Technology (CET) is unlike any other within the University of North Carolina system. Faculty members are not content to stand behind a lectern and talk; students are not content to sit behind desks and take notes. Both groups have come to ECU with a desire to solve real-world problems. We are committed to creating graduates in high demand in business and industry and at the same time dramatically enhancing economic development and prosperity in our region.
CET is comprised of the Departments of Computer Science, Construction Management, Engineering, and Technology Systems. The Department of Computer Science offers master’s degrees in computer science and in software engineering. The Department of Construction Management offers a master’s degree in construction management. The Department of Engineering offers a master’s degree in biomedical engineering. The Department of Technology Systems offers master’s degrees in network technology, occupational safety, and technology management, as well as participates in a PhD in technology management program.
The Center for Sustainability advances research, education and outreach aimed at affecting changes in business practices, public policies, and individual behaviors. The center focuses on natural resources and the built environment while retaining a strong focus on tourism and support for the unique master of science in sustainable tourism degree program.
