Learn by Doing: Project-Based Learning
Project-based learning is an integral part of the curriculum. Our students will get a strong foundation in academic studies and hands-on experience by working on real projects. Our students graduate with the technical skills they will need in their careers; and the ability to work as members of a team, to set priorities and achieve goals and to solve problems that require a multidisciplinary approach.
Our industry-experienced faculty members are with you, in classrooms and labs, on campus or online, offering instruction, academic advising and extra assistance when you need it. You will have access to a full range of facilities and equipment as you work on your assignments and projects, often with a team of students and project sponsors or business partners to support your progress.
Our offices are located in the Belk Building, which, along with the Center for Applied Technology, houses classrooms and laboratories. These include the Optoelectronics Lab, Automations Lab, Construction Estimating and Surveying Lab and the Engineering Design Lab, among others.
