Mitchell School of Engineering
Departments in the School of Engineering
The School of Engineering is made up of four distinct departments: Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, and Transportation and Urban Infrastructure Studies. Undergraduate study in each of these departments and disciplines leads to a Bachelor of Science degree.
In addition to these four departments, we offer our newest Bachelor of Science program in Mechatronics Engineering.
Our students often go on to pursue advanced graduate studies in colleges and universities across the country. Morgan's engineering program is in the top two in the nation and the top-ranked for female students - for African American B.S. graduates who go on to receive a Ph.D.
At Morgan State, our School of Engineering offers a Master of Engineering degree as well as Doctor of Engineering degrees in Civil, Electrical, and Industrial Engineering. We also offer a one-year Master of Engineering in Cyber Engineering Degree, Master of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Urban Transportation, and a Ph.D. in Transportation and Urban Infrastructure Systems.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering offers a comprehensive foundation in planning, design, and management of civil infrastructure and service systems. The curriculum covers specializations including environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic, structural and transportation engineering. As a student, you'll prepare for a career in engineering, or for work in construction management or transportation.
Electrical & Computer Engineering
The Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering teaches you to apply mathematical and physical concepts to engineering problems through laboratory and design experiences. In addition to a hands-on, design-focused curriculum, you'll gain knowledge in communications systems, signal processing, cyber engineering, microwave systems, Nano electronics, controls and automation, data engineering, and computer engineering. The program will prepare you for a career in multiple fields, including management engineering, product design, medicine, law, entrepreneurship, and software engineering.
Industrial & Systems Engineering
The Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering provides a foundation based on the: 1) optimization of systems, 2) minimization of costs, 3) maximization of productivity, and 4) improvability of quality. Four areas of concentration include Human Engineering Systems, industrial and Management Engineering Systems, information and Systems Engineering, and Manufacturing Systems. These concentrations provide students with the ability to solve large problems through innovative and critical thinking while integrating people, information, material, money, and technological resources.
Mechatronics engineering is the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science for the design of intelligent systems.
It prepares students for a variety of careers in industries such as aerospace, robotics, energy, automotive, biomedical, and manufacturing. The Bachelor of Science degree program in Mechatronics Engineering offered in the Mitchell School of Engineering incorporates Industry 4.0 that covers topics in artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, machine learning, internet-of-things, cloud computing and robotics, all for the design and development of smart systems and products. Our mechatronics engineering program prepares students for the workforce of 2050 and beyond by helping them learn how to (1) utilize and apply manufacturing technology solutions, software, and programming languages to automate and optimize manufacturing processes, (2) integrate and design functional mechatronic devices and components, which are increasingly associated with both Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) and the Internet-of-Things (IoTs), and (3) develop skills through hands-on learning experiences and through collaborative learning environments.
Transportation & Urban Infrastructure Studies
The Bachelor of Science degree in Transportation Systems Engineering is designed to accelerate the production of diverse, well-trained transportation professionals who are skilled in the field of transportation engineering, exposed to the related fields of planning, management, and logistics, and capable of pursuing senior-level positions by having the skills necessary to obtain professional licensure. It is the only program of its kind in the country. The University is the only known institution nationwide with an academic transportation department offering three degrees (B.S., M.S., and Ph.D.) in transportation.The Bachelor of Science degree in Transportation Systems provides a non-engineering option for students interested in pursuing a career in transportation planning, management, and logistics. You will utilize mathematics, science, technological tools, and principles of engineering, planning, and management to solve complex transportation-related problems. The curriculum offers a broad foundation in planning, engineering, economics, management, and logistics to prepare you for a career in related transportation fields.
