The mission of the Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology is to educate the next generation of technical professionals in the skills and knowledge base necessary to create and manage the technology-based enterprises that will provide future economic growth and an improved standard of living for the state of Arkansas and its citizens. The college’s expectation is for every Arkansas child to have the opportunity to participate in the new knowledge-based digital economy of the 21st century. This mission includes technological education at all levels, from high school through advanced graduate degrees, as well as contributions through scholarly research and community involvement.
In meeting this mission, the college offers a wide range of graduate degrees. Graduate students have the option to pursue a Ph.D. in Integrated Computing or Engineering Science and Systems. The College participates in the M.S.-Ph.D. program in Bioinformatics (See program section for more information) offered jointly with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Additional graduate programs in the college include an M.S. degree in Computer Science, an M.S. degree in Construction Management, a graduate certificate program and an M.S. degree in Information Quality as well as a graduate certificate program in Technology Innovation. It also offers a graduate certificate program and an M.S. degree in Systems Engineering. Extensive outreach to the general undergraduate population happens through our Computer Literacy classes and the acclaimed Information Technology (IT) minor, designed to provide the non-technology majors with the IT tools necessary to command leadership positions in today’s IT-enabled enterprises.
Outreach to the community includes the IT certificate program for in-service learning and extensive partnering with high schools across the state for in-school activities and summer programs. Specific emphasis is on partnerships with the local and regional industries ranging from direct company input into our programs to in-service courses to directed research projects.
