Computational Problem Solving Lab

The Computational Problem Solving Lab is where new engineering students are first introduced to structured problem solving using today's omnipresent computers.

Our future leaders become thoroughly versed in the practicum of writing instructions to control the computers and microcontrollers that govern everyday life while simultaneously framing a model of understanding that they will apply to solve theoretical and practical problems in all disciplines.
