  • Mission statement is on our web site. We do NOT teach technologies (VB, .Net, etc.). We DO teach programming and problem solving along with how to use those skills in conjunction with technologies. Our curriculum prepares the student by giving them the underlying knowledge to adapt to new technology.
  • Time means money! National Science Foundation, NASA, Office of Naval Research all promote undergraduate involvement
