Mathematics, Computing and Engineering Degrees & Programs
Biomedical engineering is a broad field that involves using technology to solve medical problems. Learn more about how to study biomedical engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Chemical engineers apply the basic principles of chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and related engineering disciplines to the production of goods and materials for society.
Our nationally recognized degree programs in civil and environmental engineering give you a chance to work with top faculty in world-class research facilities.
Computer science concentrates on theory, design, and applications of digital computers and information-processing techniques.
Electrical engineering students learn about sensors, circuits, energy systems and more. At the bachelor's degree level, students can pursue an emphasis in either biomedical engineering or renewable energy.
Materials science and engineering includes elements from a variety of engineering disciplines. Graduating students are at the forefront of developing and testing materials that can stand up to extreme environments or outperform existing materials. Students utilize state-of-the-art characterization tools such as chromatographs, electron microscopes, and spectrometers to study these materials.
The department of Mathematics and Statistics offer several degree programs with well-rounded curriculum in both theory and application of mathematics and statistics. Our graduates are successful in pursuing careers in private industry, government, education and Ph.D. programs.
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines, and our graduates are versatile problem solvers. They learn to communicate effectively, design mechanical systems and find creative answers to real-world problems.
The Minerals Resource Engineering Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary degree that combines studies from the Department of Mining Engineering and Department of Geological Sciences, with applications in mine ventilation, mine environmental, reclamation, remediation and restoration studies, mine automation and robotics, rock mechanics, drilling and blasting, materials handling, ore reserve characterization, geostatics and mineral economics.
The interdisciplinary program in nanotechnology is open to all students, although it is geared towards students in engineering and science fields who seek specialization in the science and technology of processes, systems, and phenomena that occur at the nanometer size scale.
Students and faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno have the unique opportunity to study within this specialized area of research with access to cutting-edge technology, such as a new functional MRI facility—a partnership between our Center for Integrative Neuroscience and the Renown Health medical center.
Unmanned autonomous systems fuse mechanical systems and computing technologies to create intelligent systems capable of interacting with the complexities of the real world. Students learn to design, engineer and operate these groundbreaking systems in our new interdisciplinary minor.
