Bachelors (BS) in Engineering

Engineering is the application of mathematical and scientific knowledge to provide for the technological needs of society. This major offers a 97-98-semester-hour course of study with a concentration in civil, computer, electrical or mechanical engineering. Design work is integrated throughout the curriculum, utilizing current methodologies and computer tools. The engineering major will prepare students for the engineering profession, graduate programs and professional licensure. All engineering majors will be required to take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam prior to graduation.

Those students interested in pursuing an engineering degree in other areas, such as chemical or aerospace engineering, should see Applied Science.

Upon entering, students interested in majoring in engineering should contact an engineering advisor. There are specific general education requirements for engineering majors. There is also a sequence for courses in the major.
