EIT Building Exterior

Fall classes have begun, and the momentum continues to build in UALR’s Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology (EIT).

We continue to innovate and stay on top of current trends in the marketplace in all of our undergraduate programs – architectural and construction engineering , civil and construction engineeringcomputer scienceconstruction managementearth science, environmental engineering, information scienceengineering technology and systems engineering. Our programs are built around forward-thinking precepts, meaning our graduates are prepared to immediately succeed in construction-, engineering- and technology-focused careers – whether working for themselves or at a leading company – as well as in graduate programs at top universities.

EIT is also home to eight cutting-edge graduate programs including doctoral degrees, masters of science degrees and graduate certificates – all focused on strategic areas of commerce and research directly relevant to 21st Century success.

We’ve now begun our fourth academic year in our six-story, 115,000-square-foot EIT Building, which was designed and built to promote students’ success in learning and research. And our home in the middle of Little Rock – Arkansas’s capital city – also provides employment and cultural opportunities found nowhere else in the state.

In 13 years, EIT has become a true center of academic excellence, recognized by U.S. News and World report as having one of the top undergraduate engineering programs at a public university in the South.

As I begin my third academic year as EIT’s dean, my family and I feel at home in Little Rock, and I remain ever more optimistic about the future at EIT and UALR. We have a world-class faculty ready to prepare the next generation of successful technologists, engineers and construction professionals. Our slogan is “Building Bright Futures,” and I invite all who are ready for an engaging, challenging, future-focused education to consider taking their next steps toward their own bright futures at EIT.
