Inside the Program

Collaborative project helps local kids with disabilities

As an engineering student, you have the opportunity to work hands-on in your industry while also making a difference in children’s lives through GoBabyGo! 

The collaborative program involves engineering and physical therapy students who modify off-the-shelf toy ride-on cars for children with disabilities. 

“It allows me to engage my mind. In the end you’ve done something to help someone less-fortunate than yourself,” said computer engineering major Brandon Nece.


Each MSEE student chooses a major and minor specialization area. Major areas include communication and signal processing, computing systems, control systems and robotics, and power and energy systems. Any of these can also be chosen as a minor area. In addition, computing can be a minor area.

The program consists of at least 30 credit hours and offers three graduating options: thesis, project or coursework.
