Courses in the major are taught by full-time professors who have actual work experience in the field. The department offers small class sizes, which allow for individual attention. Coursework is centered in the University's John T. Myers Technology Center, which has more than 20 state-of-the-art laboratories filled with up-to-date equipment and supplies.
