Welcome! We look forward to having you visit the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences. Schedule your visit today.
Why CEMS?Our students and faculty are immersed in an atmosphere of discovery that stretches across disciplines to find answers to complex and challenging problems in engineering, mathematics and computer science.
Our students learn from and work with faculty members who are pioneering new knowledge at the forefront of engineering and the computational sciences. Participation in this research-enhanced environment opens a world of possibilities for students and produces inspired individuals: critical thinkers and creative leaders to address the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.
What Makes CEMS Unique:
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
First-year students learn by doing in introductory design courses. Sophomores, juniors and seniors have the opportunity to join research teams of individual faculty members working on a variety of socially relevant projects.
As seniors, engineering students work in teams in order to solve real-world engineering problems. Electrical engineering and mechanical engineering student teams work on multidisciplinary design projects in collaboration with clients from industry or with faculty on research-related devices. Recent clients have included international companies like IBM and Goodrich Aerospace to local companies such as MicroStrain and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Research related projects have been sponsored by NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Civil engineering and environmental engineering students work in teams with local municipalities and non-profits to design sustainable systems to serve those communities.
Award Winning Faculty
Outstanding hires in the past decade have supplemented an already distinguished faculty of world class researchers who are garnering awards and acclaim at an astounding pace. Nearly 25% of the faculty has been recognized with the prestigious National Young Investigator awards.
Active Student Groups
Students are encouraged to join one or more of our clubs and associations, such as Alternative Energy Racing Organization (AERO) the Society of Women Engineers, the Computer Science Student Association, CS Crew, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and others.
In these groups, you'll find like-minded students who work on interesting projects, and help each other get through our rigorous academic curriculum, and developing professional skills needed for today's workplace.
Through the Department of Student Life you'll find multitude of other student organizations where students explore common interests in music, outdoor recreation and more. Getting involved at UVM is a great way to enhance your Academic experience, make new friends, and overall have a good time.
Unique Structure of College
CEMS is home to one school — The School of Engineering — and two departments — The Department of Computer Science and The Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The cross-pollination of ideas is only possible in a setting like CEMS, where students have the opportunity to gain knowledge of supporting disciplines within and outside the college.
Providing a Broad Education
In the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS), we believe in educating engineers, scientists and mathematicians in just this broadly inclusive way, providing students with a rigorous education in the technical disciplines, supplemented with study of the liberal arts to develop their critical thinking and leadership abilities.
As a "public ivy" with an internationally distinguished faculty, the University of Vermont (UVM) is well poised to provide its engineering students with a unified engineering education. CEMS students have access not only to our talented engineering, computer science and mathematics faculty, but to a community of teacher-scholars across the campus of a small research university.
Burlington Vermont "Has it all"
Burlington is an epicenter of outdoor activity and urban delight. We’re loaded with dizzying array of excellent restaurants run by world-renowned chefs, elegant theaters, modish coffee shops, and shops that range from designer boutiques to handcrafted artistry. At night, Burlington turns into a live music hotspot where you can soak in some amazing tunes, and watch the world go by – or hit the dance floor!
Internships and Links to Industry
The University of Vermont College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences and UVM Career Services are excited to announce that we have integrated our ongoing efforts to develop internship and cooperative opportunities for students while supporting the growth and development of Vermont companies. Our mission is to recruit and transition top talent from UVM CEMS into Vermont's businesses. Together we offer a full range of internship to both UVM CEMS students and Vermont employers.
