background

School of Engineering

The School of Engineering’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science programs provide students with comprehensive instruction. The Chief Academic Officer, Dean, advisory committees, and faculty are responsible for these programs. SFBU’s program advisory committees include industry leaders, employers, and various community leaders who review the undergraduate and graduate programs and provide advice. The courses in each program focus on practical applications but include instruction on theoretical contexts that serves as a foundation for better understanding such applications. SFBU is are proud to be one of the best engineering universities in California.

Program Goals and Purpose

SFBU’s School of Engineering’s degree programs provide future engineers with the skills they need to succeed in the computer and high-technology electronics industries. The curriculum provides an excellent education for those who want to understand the current state of our changing technological society. The learning environment features a friendly and collaborative dynamic that produces graduates who receive quality employment offers from some of the top Bay Area technology companies. The San Francisco Bay University engineering programs are challenging, innovative, and rewarding.

School of Engineering Faculty

All SFBU engineering faculty members possess the following qualities: advanced degrees earned in engineering and science disciplines, high-tech work experience, and enthusiasm in teaching and helping the students. Engineering is not a homogeneous discipline; it requires many special talents. Some faculty members in the School are goal-oriented designers, concerned with teaching students how to solve problems -- how to synthesize relevant information and ideas and apply them in a creative, feasible design. Other engineering faculty members function more typically as method-oriented scientists, using the techniques of their disciplines in their teaching and research to investigate various natural and artificial phenomena.

Objectives for SFBU’s Engineering Programs

The courses and hands-on experiences in SFBU’s Engineering programs target the following objectives:

  • A goal-oriented education with a student-specific plan.
  • Professional training and the latest learning resources.
  • Relevant laboratory experience as a vital part of education.
  • An environment that fosters integrity and a focus on quality work.
  • A well-rounded education for undergraduate students.
  • The chance for graduate students to learn advanced skills and develop professionally in order to become more competent engineers.
