Choose from four concentrations and obtain a practical degree that can take you into a variety of industries all over the world.

The engineering program provides you with a bachelor of science in engineering (BSE) in one of four programmed concentrations. This program is designed to equip students for graduate study, entry-level positions in industry and life-long learning.

Program distinctives:

  • Gain experience early on by working with real customers in your first semester design course.
  • Build your skills in solving design problems through assignments throughout your coursework.
  • Present your work to practicing engineers for feedback on real technical problems.
  • Design and construct your masterpiece in your senior capstone design project.

Our BSE is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Elective options & CORE requirements

** If you are undecided about your concentration, the first two years are the same for all students and any of the above documents can be used for course planning.

Students must meet the requirements of at least one of the four concentrations listed in the concentrations tab.

Group majors combining engineering and another discipline (but not accredited by ABET) may be appropriate for some students (see the department chair for more information)

In order to graduate with honors in engineering, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 and a  total of six honors courses (18 hours minimum) overall, including at least two honors courses outside the major, at least two honors courses in engineering (except ENGR-101, 181, 185, 285, 294, 337, 339, 340, 382, 385, 387, 390 and 394) with a minimum grade of A– (at least one of the engineering courses must be a 300-level course).
  • Receive credit for ENGR-385: "Engineering Internship," or ENGR-387 International Engineering Internship.

Since the engineering department does not regularly offer honors sections, the honors courses in engineering are taken by special arrangement with the course instructor.
