About CECS

As the Interim Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences (CECS) at Marshall University, I would like to welcome you to the college.

CECS is a comprehensive engineering and computer science college with 5 departments: applied safety & technology, biomedical engineering, civil engineering, computer sciences and electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. The faculty and staff of the college are dedicated to providing a world-class, hands-on, project-based education in all of our degree programs, both graduate and undergraduate. As the engineering college of the university, we are committed to making Marshall, Huntington, West Virginia, and the nation a better place to live and work, and to providing well educated graduates to contribute to both a national and international society.

Whether you’re exploring our web-site or walking around campus, the signs of CECS’ growth are obvious. Our college is housed in the Arthur Weisberg Family Applied Engineering Complex, supplemented by the Arthur Weisberg Family Applied Engineering Complex, both state of the art research and learning facilities. Faculty offices and classrooms are located throughout the first 3 floors of the building. In front of the faculty offices are collaboration stations where groups of students can meet with faculty or their classmates to discuss research, homework, or advising. The collaboration stations are integrated with state-of-the-art technology that promotes student/faculty interaction opportunities. This building houses one of a very few advanced materials testing labs in the region and in the nation. Our faculty is comprised of professionals who not only are respected and successful in their fields of study, but who also are dedicated to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge in all its forms. CECS students have the benefit of daily interaction with their professors, who pride themselves on being available for questions, discussion, and continued mentorship of students.

We hope that you find all the information you need here, and we encourage you to check back with us often for updates. As always, please do not hesitate to contact any of us with your questions or comments.
