Six New Programs for CEIT
The University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents recently approved the formation of six new programs in the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Information Technology.
- B.S. in Computer Engineering
- B.S. in Construction Engineering
- M.S. in Civil Engineering
- M.S. in Electrical Engineering
- M.S. in Information Technology
- M.S. in Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Electrical Engineering will add the B.S. in Computer Engineering and the M.S. in Electrical Engineering programs, and be re-named the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The Department of Civil Engineering and Construction Management will add the B.S. in Construction Engineering and the M.S. in Civil Engineering, and be re-named the Department of Civil Engineering and Construction.
The departments of Information Technology and Mechanical Engineering will add their respective M.S. programs. The current M.S. in Applied Engineering will focus on engineering management and become part of the Department of Manufacturing Engineering.
The current online M.S. in Computer Science will also expand to become a hybrid (face-to-face and online) program, allowing expansion of programs and service on campus.
This expansion of programs provides master’s degrees that are well recognized by industry professionals and graduate school applicants. In addition, the graduate programs will allow Georgia Southern’s engineering and IT faculty to expand their cutting-edge research programs. The undergraduate programs are popular with college applicants and the degrees are in high demand by employers across the region.
