The Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Information Technology (CEIT) at Georgia Southern University started operations on July 1, 2012. The college offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. At the undergraduate level, the college offers the Bachelor of Science degree programs in Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Construction Management, Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Manufacturing Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. At the graduate level, the college offers the Master of Science degree programs in Applied Engineering and Computer Science. Two programs are offered entirely online: the WebBSIT and the Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS).  The CEIT also offers two graduate certificates in Engineering & Manufacturing Management, and Occupational Safety & Environmental Compliance.  The Regents' Engineering Pathway Program (REP Program) is also offered as an option for students to complete the first two years of their engineering curriculum at designated Georgia colleges and then transfer to Georgia Southern or another engineering school in Georgia, based on the availability of a particular major, to complete their BS degree in engineering.

Vision

The College of Engineering and Information Technology (CEIT) will be a nationally recognized leader in engineering, computer science, and information technology in the areas of student-centric and application-based teaching, research, and service.

Mission

The College of Engineering and Information Technology (CEIT) will maintain a dynamic and evolutionary environment of excellence in teaching, research, and service in which students, faculty and staff can achieve their professional goals. In these endeavors, CEIT will foster student-centric professional learning experiences utilizing advanced technologies that are applied with state-of-the-art equipment, inspire innovation and invention, encourage sustainability, and technically and economically enrich our communities and societies.

Experiential Learning Opportunities

Internships

Internship opportunities are available for all undergraduate programs in the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Information Technology and are required for students majoring in Construction Management and Information Technology. Internships are supervised experiential learning programs, designed to allow students an opportunity to receive practical experience in their chosen field of study. Students should contact Dr. John O'Malley, Director of REP Program and Co-op Programs in the CEIT Office of the Dean for further information.

Cooperative Education

Co-ops allow students the opportunity to gain work experience related to their academic major while earning a salary. To participate in a cooperative education opportunity, a student must have completed at least 30 semester hours of instruction, have a grade point average of at least 2.5, and be willing to participate in a minimum of two alternating co-op work semesters. Work responsibilities and salaries are determined by the employer. Students should contact Dr. John O'Malley, Director of REP Program and Co-op Programs in the CEIT Office of the Dean for further information.

Undergraduate Research

Involving undergraduate students in applied, hands-on research activities and projects is the primary focus of the CEIT Office of Undergraduate Research. CEIT administration and faculty work diligently to provide students with abundant opportunities to engage in research under faculty supervision. Examples of each department's current areas of research are included in the department brochures and Web pages. Each fall, CEIT funds student-led research projects, which are showcased in a spring Research Symposium.

Advisement

Undergraduate

Academic advisement for all majors in CEIT is conducted through the CEIT Student Services Center.
