The world today is drowning in data. There is a treasure trove of valuable and underutilized insights that can be gleaned from information companies and people leave behind on the internet – our ‘digital breadcrumbs’ – from job postings, to online news, social media, online ad spend, patent applications and more. In an array of well-equipped facilities, students in Computer, Electrical, and Software Engineering work together with their Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering classmates on capstone projects and other cutting-edge multidisciplinary efforts such as autonomous aerial vehicles and other types of robotic systems.

Computer technology can be used for visual illustrations: Students can learn more when teachers teach them using visual illustrations. Now when we talk of computer technology, we cover technological tools like PC’s , smart whiteboards , iPads , Projectors , Internet and Mobile phones. Both students and teachers can use these tools in education. For example, teachers can use smart whiteboards and projectors in visual illustrations, teachers can use PC’,s to assign work to students in the classroom , students can use iPads to read from any were or share illustration images with their peers while in the classroom. It is well known that humans learn better when images or videos are integrated with text. A teacher can derive live stream videos from the internet and use a projector and a white board to show a live example to their students while in the classroom.
