Discover the Possibilities

Professor Bob Erikson (2nd from left) talks about computer science.

At UVM's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (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 such fields as biomedical engineering, environmental engineering, advanced materials and computational sciences.

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.

Our Facilities

Adding to the capabilities of specialized laboratory, computing and research facilities across the disciplines, CEMS has recently acquired Perkins Building, currently being renovated to accommodate two state-of-the-art computing and teaching laboratories, new and improved mechanical and biomedical facilities, and a beautifully designed student lounge to accommodate our growing student population.

Currently, CEMS has its own Unix-based computer facility, consisting of several servers, three computer labs and a support staff. The three labs consist of high-powered PCs that dual boot to both Windows and Linux, and are loaded with the latest software packages such as MS Office, AutoCad and various other packages specified by the professors. The servers are Sun/Solaris machines, and CEMS students are allowed to write and run Unix programs.

Your Preparation

Students with strong performance in a college preparatory program, including chemistry, physics and calculus, and with an 1800 combined New SAT score or better, would be well positioned for success at CEMS.
