College of Engineering (COE)
Chemical Engineering
As a bioengineer, you'll apply what you learn about living systems to solve problems. Bioengineers study the safety of food supplies, keep desirable organisms alive in fermentation processes, and design bio-based sensors. Bioengineering is widely used to destroy waste products and clean up contaminated soil and water. Bioengineers contribute greatly to human health and the environment.
As a chemical engineer, you might discover and manufacture better plastics, paints, fuels, fibers, medicines, fertilizers, semiconductors, or paper. Chemical engineers play an important role in protecting the environment, inventing cleaner technologies, calculating environmental impacts, and studying the fate of chemicals in the environment.

Engineers in Chemical & Biological Engineering at MSU are
harnessing the power of organisms living in Yellowstone’s hot springs
developing unique materials for turbines to capture wind energy
using magnetic resonance imaging to improve novel drug delivery mechanisms
and finding sustainable/renewable sources of fuels and chemicals.
Explore Majors, cont.
Civil Engineering
As a civil engineer, you might be asked to design a school that could withstand an earthquake, a road system that eliminates chronic traffic jams, or a sports stadium that offers everyone a great view. Civil engineers oversee the construction of buildings and infrastructure: highways, skyscrapers, railways, bridges, and reservoirs, as well as some of the most spectacular engineering feats—think of the towering Taipei 101 in Asia, or the Chunnel, the 31-mile-long tunnel beneath the English Channel.

Civil Engineers at MSU are finding ways to
provide clean drinking water
restore wetlands
build safe, long-lasting bridges and buildings
design roads that protect wildlife and habitats
and limit the deadly effects of avalanches.
Explore majors, cont.
Computer Science
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that 70% of all new jobs across all STEM fields during this decade, across engineering, the physical sciences, the life sciences, and the social sciences, will be in computer science.
Computer scientists are leading efforts to solve many global challenges. They include advancing personalized learning, securing cyberspace, developing new tools for scientific discovery, reverse-engineering the brain, advancing health informatics and enhancing virtual reality.
Exploring majors, cont.
Computer Engineering
Computer Engineering is the design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of computers and computer-controlled equipment for the benefit of humankind. Computers are an integral part of our everyday lives.
MSU houses both electrical and computer engineering in one department, Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Exploring majors, cont.
Electrical Engineering
As an electrical engineer, you could develop components for fun things, such as MP3 players, digital cameras, or roller coasters, as well as the most essential, such as medical tests or communications systems. This large field of engineering encompasses the macro (huge power grids that light up cities, for example) as well as the micro (including a device smaller than a millimeter that tells a car’s airbags when to inflate). As an electrical engineer, you might work on robotics, computer networks, wireless communications, or medical imaging—areas that are at the forefront of technological innovation.
Exploring majors, cont.
People in Electrical & Computer Engineering at MSU are
designing innovative “microgrid” electrical power systems
creating the next generation of wireless communication products
building miniature optical systems for medical applications and smart phones
improving speed and power efficiency in computer systems
studying natural optical phenomena, like the aurora borealis
analyzing audio data to help document and protect natural soundscapes
and inventing a new generation of sophisticated sensors and control devices.
Exploring majors, cont.
Mechanical Engineering
As a mechanical engineer, you might develop a bike lock or an aircraft carrier, a toy or a car engine, a wheelchair or a sailboat—just about anything that involves a mechanical process, whether it’s a cool, cutting-edge product or a life-saving medical device. Mechanical engineering is a broad discipline, one that you can apply to nearly every technology, from aerospace and automotive to computers and biotechnology.
Exploring majors, cont.
Industrial Engineering
Industrial engineers, sometimes called efficiency experts, determine the most effective ways to use people, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service. As an industrial engineer, you would ensure that complex and large-scale systems operate safely and efficiently. You might keep an operating room running like clockwork, make amusement park lines shorter, or help a clothing chain remain stocked with every size of jeans.
Exploring majors, cont.
At MSU, people in Industrial Engineering are
making driving safer
streamlining health care
and reducing manufacturing waste.
Exploring majors, cont.
At MSU, people in Mechanical Engineering are
improving wind turbine blades
developing unmanned aerial vehicles
improving avalanche survivability
insuring that clean energy becomes a reality
and learning from biology to design better engineering solutions.

Mechanical Engineering Technology
The mechanical engineering spectrum is very broad and mechanical engineering technology graduates may find themselves working throughout this spectrum in the following areas:
• machine design
• manufacturing and automation
• control of engineering systems, subsystems and their components
• facilities or equipment maintenance.
Mechanical engineering technology professionals can also play a critical role in solving many important problems facing the world today:
• sustainable energy production
• energy conversion and storage
• mechanical/electrical systems in homes and buildings.

Industrial Engineering
Working for a contractor might involve managing resources needed to construct highways, buildings and large industrial plants. In the field, you could be planning, scheduling, controlling costs and supervising actual construction. In the office, you could be planning and scheduling work and/or estimating and bidding for all types of construction projects.
If you work for an engineering consulting firm, you will most likely be inspecting construction projects, testing construction materials, or conducting construction and engineering surveys. You might also be hired as a technical sales representative by an equipment or materials supplier.
