NPU Academic Home

NPU's bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs are designed to prepare students for the practice of engineering, computer science, and business administration at a professional level. In addition to courses teaching the fundamentals, each degree curriculum is designed to be connected to Silicon Valley's major industries in electronics, computer engineering, information technology, enterprise management, and global business development.

As Silicon Valley is a dynamic and quickly changing, high-technology hub where fierce competition among businesses is the norm, employers tend to be more demanding about workers' qualifications. Job seekers in the Silicon Valley are required to be well prepared in their background training as well as continued education.

NPU's curriculum committees in various disciplines hold regular meetings to ensure that the curriculum design and facility support in hardware and software can meet industry standards. Furthermore, faculty members must have had previous or current industry experience and be equipped with up-to-date knowledge and skills in their teaching subjects.

Please visit the individual school pages for general information on your program of interest (see links below). For more specific information, please see the NPU Catalog and Admissions' pages.
