Assistant Professor of Engineering (Computer Science)
R.B. Annis School of Engineering
University of Indianapolis
During the 2016-2017 academic year, the University of Indianapolis (Ulndy) launched innovative and systems-based design-centric engineering programs in the high-demand fields of industrial and systems engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering. The following academic year, the computer science program joined the School. The programs in the R.B. Annis School of Engineering have a strong liberal arts core and focus on four principles: creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and social responsibility.
Another hallmark of the engineering programs is the DesignSpine, which provides students with interdisciplinary system-based design experiences throughout their entire academic tenure by solving challenges from external stakeholders. Also, these experiences emphasize soft skills in communication and organization along with project management skills. For more information, please visit: http://www.uindy.edu/cas/engineering/
