Engineering and Computer Sciences
The School of Engineering and Computer Science prepares students at the cutting edge of technology, immersing students in hands-on experience and theory from day one. All programs have been designed to provide a broad-based understanding of the relevant theories on which the areas of specialization are based. Students begin project based learning in the freshman year and work on increasingly complex projects as they move through the curriculum. All of our programs are focused on providing students with an intensive experience in their chosen specialization which may ultimately lead to either industry employment or graduate school. Information specific to each program follows.
The vision for the engineering program at DWC is for students to have an educational experience that is intense, personal, and exciting, that firmly grounds them in theory and design, and that makes them both competent and confident to take on any challenges they may face as practicing engineers.
Daniel Webster College is a collaborator in the international CDIO initiative (http://www.cdio.org/index.html), "an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers [that stresses] engineering fundamentals set in the context of Conceiving, Designing, Implementing, and Operating real-world systems and products."
CDIO states, "We know some interesting facts about how experiences affect learning. Engineering students tend to learn by experiencing the concrete and then applying the experience to the abstract. Hands-on experience is a vital foundation on which to base theory and science." At DWC we embrace this philosophy of engineering education.
