The Civil and Mechanical Engineering Technology program at South Carolina State University attempts to go beyond technical competence to develop technologists who are leaders in their areas of specialization. Civil and Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates must be able to apply the principles of science and mathematics to the solution of relevant problems in our society. Challenges facing civil and mechanical engineering technologists include housing, pollution control, transportation, transmission and utilization of mechanical and thermal power, water resources development, and energy.
Students majoring in Civil and Mechanical Engineering Technology receive a strong background in mathematics, science, engineering science, and engineering design; the program also includes a minor concentration in Energy Use and Conservation Technology. The curriculum is geared toward the application of proven engineering principles and is more hardware-oriented. Most of the departmental courses have laboratory sections and hands-on experience where use of equipment is greatly emphasized.
The Nuclear Engineering curriculum is offered at South Carolina State University in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Graduates of this program will be able to address needs in the nuclear industry. They will be prepared to be any part of the process: from planning, to designing, developing, testing and/or operating nuclear reactors. The curriculum emphasizes the fundamentals of engineering and therefore does not limit our graduates to the field of nuclear engineering. Graduates of this program will also be prepared for graduate studies in nuclear engineering, including radiological sciences, materials sciences and other fields.
