Learn to

Apply analysis, design, development and testing principles in the construction of software systems

Function effectively on a software development team

Apply mathematical, algorithmic and computing principles appropriate to the design and implementation of computer-based systems

Communicate effectively on technical subject matters

Recognize of the value of continued professional development, as evidenced by the ability to acquire and use appropriate techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice

The engineering classes that you take at UNCW are the same classes that are taken at NCSU, but with much smaller class sizes, which I found very advantageous.
