Dean's Welcome

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn more about the School of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS)!  We offer an environment where motivated students can excel academically, can grow in their faith, and get the preparation they need to be successful in life and their careers. Our courses of study include bioinformaticscomputer scienceelectrical and computer engineeringgeneral engineering, and mechanical engineering.

A vital connection for students during their time here is their interaction with our faculty. We have faculty who care about their students. We have faculty that are leaders in their fields who not only  teach in the classroom, but advise student organizations, help students with career goals, participate in student mission trips, and offer opportunities for students to get involved in their research.  Our faculty have won teaching, research, and service achievements within Baylor and by national professional organizations.

We believe that an education in ECS is more than just learning material in the classroom. A vital part of our education is the community of scholars that students join when they enter our programs. Within Baylor's East Village, the Teal Residential College, provides an environment where students can explore their vocation through faculty exchanges, social events, day-to-day interactions, and chapel.

Our students can explore a wide range of professional and service organizations and gain valuable leadership experience.  Association of Computing Machinery, Society of Women Engineers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and Engineers with a Mission are a short list of organizations here at Baylor.

Our graduates have excellent career opportunities after they graduate, whether that is extending their education or finding full-time employment.   Some of our graduates choose to go on to medical, law, and business school while some pursue graduate degrees at the best graduate engineering and computer science programs in the country.  Those seeking full-time employment or internship opportunities can seek help with our career management staff who are ready to help connect students with dozens of employers. A majority of our students participate in a paid summer internships with our industry partners.  

Engineering and Computer Science are disciplines closely connected to technology and industry. Our industry Board of Advocates , which currently includes more than 30 industry executives, provides valuable advice and financial support to our programs.

We invite you to not only explore our website, but come for a visit.  We think you’ll find Baylor offers a unique environment where you can be challenged academically, but also explore your faith in depth where you have caring faculty.
