When & Where
NCSLI/Northern Illinois University
The College of Engineering & Engineering Technology (CEET) develops adaptable problem solvers capable and ready to solve the challenges of a dynamic and quickly changing world. Their students not only focus in the classroom, but also spend time working inside our many laboratories, where they learn to apply the complicated principles they learn in the classroom. This prepares each student for internships and research projects that most often translate to job opportunities immediately upon graduation.
CEET has more than 200 company presidents, CEO's, and senior executives among our alumni, and our alumni society (ETAS) directly impacts the instruction of our faculty. CEET understands that engineering professionals are constantly evolving, so we keep our finger on the pulse of change. Their classroom instruction is always current, and the majority of our faculty have business and industry experience.
CEET has 45 full-time faculty members, 96% of which hold doctoral degrees. Their faculty personally teach all undergraduate and graduate classes, so you'll learn from qualified, skilled professionals. Their classrooms are small and you'll benefit from the personal attention of your faculty members who know you by name and take a personal interest in your education and your life.
