Degrees offered: Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering / Operations Research, and Mechanical Engineering
Fast track: Students with a strong engineering background do not need to formally matriculate into a degree program before beginning their studies
Columbia has gone “all in” on online degrees and they offer accelerated, fast track programs for busy professionals. Columbia students can focus on one of several areas of concentration or prepare for future endeavors such as architecture. Some typical concentrations are: Structural engineering: applications to steel and concrete buildings, bridges, and other structures; Geotechnical engineering: soil mechanics, engineering geology, and foundation engineering; and Construction engineering and management.
Accreditation: Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC)
Dr. Marchant received training in leading laboratories that provided him with biochemical, molecular and imaging skill sets to probe the functional architecture of cell signaling events. As an independent principal investigator at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Marchant’s interests diversified to utilize these skill sets to advance a variety of projects in cellular and regenerative biology. He has been the recipient of more than a dozen grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), as well as numerous research awards and seed grants from the University of Minnesota.
