On October 6 and 7, WSU Tri-Cities and its School of Engineering and Applied Sciences will host the 19th annual conference of the Consortium for Computing Science in Colleges, Northwestern Region.
Approximately 75 faculty members and students from colleges and universities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Northern California will attend talks, panels, and tutorials on a variety of topics in academic computing, with an emphasis on undergraduate education and research. This will be the second time the campus has hosted CCSC-NW, the previous time being in 2011. For more information, visit http://www.ccsc.org/northwest/2017.
As recently reported, a team of Mechanical Engineering students has flown their WSU TC Cougar plane into a top 25% spot overall, ahead of LSU, UVA, and North Carolina A&T University, in the regular class at the 2017 West Aero Competition in Fort Worth, TX, sponsored by SAE. Expertly led by ME Prof. Messiha Saad, the team conceived, designed, and built this Cougar plane as a capstone senior design project. In the competition, these SEAS students valiantly distinguished themselves against formidable domestic and international competitors with decades of experience. Through their accomplishments, these students have proudly expressed the indomitable WSU-VCEA Cougars’ roars! Congratulations to Prof. Saad and this outstanding team of SEAS students. NW Public TV has also featured an exciting story about our students’ achievements. Enjoy their video and ours!

In order to graduate as profession-ready students and become leaders in today’s complex global society, you will benefit from industry internships. These are exceptional opportunities that allow you, our students, to gain experience, expand your perspectives, and stand out with potential employers.
Start the process by learning more about our internship program and discussing your options with your advisor!
You may safeguard the world’s cyberspace with a cybersecurity-focused degree in Computer Science from Washington State University, in Tri-Cities’ School of Engineering & Applied Sciences! In the next five years, the State of Washington will hire five thousands cybersecurity specialists, with a salary range between $60,000 and $250,000 / year. For cybersecurity specialists, there will thus exist numerous employment opportunities in high-paying WA jobs.
As VCEA students, you can also participate in education-abroad programs in several continents, including Europe and Oceania, in world-class overseas universities that teach in English. With a WSU degree in Architecture, Computer Science, or Engineering, you may be hired by multinational corporations, e.g. BMW, Boeing, and Microsoft, to name but a few, which operate globally. All value international experiences and many successfully operate in the State of Washington.
You will thus benefit from international experiences, which will also enrich you professionally as well as personally.

WSU Tri-Cities is creating a MakerSpace where students, faculty, and community members can come together to network and learn through hands-on projects and designs. Students will have access to the tools, ideas, and mentors to put their designs to the test. If they can imagine it, we’ll provide the space for them to make it. Do you have ideas for a project or recommendations on how we can best develop the space? Let us know!
Washington State University is leading the establishment of the Pacific Northwest Supercomputing Center (PNSC) to advance and ultimately define research and education in high-performance simulation and data‐intensive computing. We will expand undergraduate and graduate programs and curricula through high-performance simulation and data‐intensive computing, catalyze new collaborative partnerships, incubate multi-disciplinary initiatives and programs, and capture emerging funding opportunities.
The Scientific & Engineering Computing Collaborative (SEC2) is a multi-disciplinary institute that leads the application of High-Performance Computing throughout the educational and research programs at WSU Tri-Cities. SEC2 collaborates with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and is guided by a compelling vision and an ambitious mission.
