and approximately 60 M.S. and Ph.D. students.
Throughout the 2010-2011 academic year, two
postdocs in software engineering will be supported in the Department. A recent Department
of Education GAANN award provides extended
fellowships to six Ph.D. students who are focusing on software engineering.
The Department and College of Engineering
are undergoing a period of extensive growth. The
Department is housed in a new (opened August
2009) state-of-the art complex. Over the next three
years, the University will complete construction
of the science and engineering complex, which
