The College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) provides challenging
programs that prepare graduates for stimulating, meaningful, and rewarding professional
careers. A National Science Foundation study has predicted a shortage in the engineering workforce. The complexities of today’s products and processes require more education and continued retraining of engineers. Engineers currently in the workplace, as well as those who will graduate in the future, must augment their technical knowledge and skills in order to stay abreast of new developments and provide the technical leadership that will be needed.
Architecture prepares students for a variety of professional careers in the design and construction industries. The program emphasizes an integration of artistic principles, engineering fundamentals, and business understanding with the constant exploration of innovative design. For students who want to broaden their education at the graduate level, the architecture program offers several combined or dual degree programs in conjunction with other graduate programs at the University, including the M.B.A. (Barney School of Business), the M.F.A. (Hartford Art School), and the M.Eng.
The graduate program in engineering prepares its students for a meaningful profession
that anticipates trends in engineering practice. Students are trained to think independently to solve engineering problems in a global framework.
