Baylor > ECS > Academic Programs

The School of Engineering and Computer Science provides a solid foundation to graduating computer scientists and engineers. For example, Baylor engineering students achieve a higher passing rate on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam than students from any other engineering program in Texas. Baylor Computer Science students compete at the highest level in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest and Baylor is a past National Champion. Baylor's engineering program is ranked nationally in the top twenty by U.S. News & World Report. Engineering and computer science students participate in design projects integrated throughout the curriculum and culminating in capstone design experiences. They work in small teams and develop the intangible but essential interpersonal communication and team leadership skills and benefit from the ideas and experiences associated with the complimentary humanities and social sciences. Each of Baylor's engineering and computer science programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. Laboratories dedicated to supporting the School of Engineering and Computer Science include the Electronics Design Lab, Computer Engineering Lab, Fluids and Thermo-Energy Lab, Mechanical Materials Lab, Junior and Senior Engineering Design Labs, and Electronics and Machine Shops.
