This video provides an overview of the new Nanotechnology Certification program at Northern Illinois University. Students explain how this exciting new field of study is being researched at NIU's College of Engineering and Engineering Technology.
College of Engineering and Engineering Technology at Northern Illinois University.
As the youngest college on campus (established in 1985), we take pride in our accomplishments and in the quality of our programs. The college offers ABET and NAIT accredited programs in engineering and technology. We offer degree programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial and systems engineering, engineering technology and industrial technology.
The college is committed to providing barrier free admission to its diverse student body. The college has sustained its growth and is proud of its student population of about 1500. The Engineering Building is a world-class facility with state-of-the-art equipment providing excellent learning opportunities to students.
The college has attracted national as well as international recognition for its programs and services. In a short span, the college has been nationally recognized for graduating minority students. The college has rich diversity and has programs and services in place to sustain, encourage and enhance diversity. The mission of the college to be a practice based institution with strong ties with the regional industry is applauded by its stake holders. Over 200 partnerships with industries stimulate economic development, automation, and global competitiveness,
During the past five years, the college has engaged in several high impact research initiatives in partnership with Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Laboratory, and several Industries partners. Some of the ongoing research is addressing issues in Homeland Security, Energy and Environment, Lean Manufacturing, Active Noise and Vibration Control, Cancer Treatment , Supply Chain Management, Biodegradable Products, P-20, Computational Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Nano Science, Health Systems Engineering, Wireless Communications, Power Electronics, Radio Frequency, Mecha-tronics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, etc.
Every student coming to the college receives personalized attention and is supported through effective student support services including mentorship, peer-tutoring, advising, academic residential living and learning, internships, job placement, etc. We are proud of our near perfect student placement with a diverse set of industries.
The college has excellent partnerships with high schools, community colleges and industries in the region. Under a unique Adopt-A-High School initiative, the faculty and staff of the college have adopted more than 200 high schools in the region providing them with career and academic support services.
Faculty of the college are our real strength. They are highly accomplished in their fields with a majority having professional licensures/certifications and industrial experience. We are committed to further enhancing the research interests of our faculty and engaging in outreach activities to provide the best response to regional needs.
The college has more than 8,500 alumni, a majority of which work and stay in the Northern Illinois region. I view them as major stakeholders in collaborating with faculty, students and staff in helping the college accomplish its mission. The college's alumni society (ETAS), is an active organization reaching out to alumni and friends of the college. ETAS is engaged in several initiatives geared toward helping students succeed in their academic and professional mission.
We in the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology bring great minds together to consider some of our world's most pressing challenges...energy, the environment, health care.
