At Pacific SOECS, our students develop dual competencies - technical and social. They must understand the principles of science as well as the nature of human needs and behavior and the impact of technology on society. The modern engineer and computer scientist deal with socially relevant matters including pollution, energy resources, sustainability, health care and public transportation systems. They are experts in manufacturing processes, communications systems, medical electronics, the space program and numerous other endeavors that provide citizens of the world with a safer and more conscious experience.
