RECS Mission Statement
The Robotics, Engineering, and Computer Science (RECS) discipline inspires students to think analytically and logically, to learn how things work and to innovate ethically. Through project-based learning with an emphasis on solving problems and collaboration, students are motivated to broaden their skill-set to include entrepreneurship and nurture their creativity to design solutions for social and local benefit.
Students are encouraged to recognize and understand the effect of technology and design on diverse cultures, societies, economies, politics, and the environment. Through responsible technological independence, students will develop and maintain their digital literacy, consciousness of privacy, and their understanding of cloud computing, social media, and networking services.
