The Engineering, Physical, and Computer Sciences Department at the Rockville Campus offers courses in astronomy, engineering, computer science, geology, meteorology, physics, and physical science appropriate for all levels of student need.

We are the primary source for academic advising for students planning transfer into bachelor's degree programs in all branches of the engineering profession, as well as in astronomy, computer science, geology, meteorology, and physics.

Our engineering course work incorporates the latest industry-standard computer hardware and software. Our astronomy program maintains an observatory with multiple telescopes complete with CCD imaging devices. Most recently, a grant from the department of education has allowed for acquisition of six wireless classrooms. 

The department employs 19 full-time faculty, 40 adjunct faculty, one instructional lab manager, two lab coordinators, one machine shop supervisor, one instructional associate, and one administrative assistant. We pride ourselves on being a dynamic department, always in pursuit of improving our learning environment, and recent growth and change is evidence of this philosophy.
