Pizza, conversation and textbooks. Pretty ordinary evening in the life of college students, right?
But there was – and is – nothing ordinary about these 10 Mountaineer engineering students who had just accomplished the extraordinary – successfully navigating their robot, Cataglyphis, to amass 11 points to win the Level 2 competition for the Sample Robot Return Challenge as part of NASA’s Centennial Challenges, bringing home a $750,000 prize, the largest NASA has awarded in the five-year history of the Challenge.
About Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
Computer science and electrical engineering represent two fast-paced and ever-changing fields. While many professionals complain about stagnation, a computer scientist or electrical engineer is always learning new tricks and finding better ways to solve any given problem.
The Department provides educational programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels in computer science, electrical engineering, computer engineering, and biometric systems. Each of the degree programs provides a broad spectrum of knowledge in its field, but also provides the opportunity for specialization through emphasis areas, electives, independent research projects, and directed studies. The programs also provide the broad general education necessary to put technical knowledge into perspective. Scholarships are available.
The Lane Department is home to an extensive research programs with major activities in biometric systems; distributed computing and communications; health science engineering; electronic materials, devices, and sensors; power systems; and software engineering and information assurance.
Our programs provide students with the skills required for a broad range of jobs in industry, government, academia, business, and research. View employment outcomes.
