Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE)

Program Requirements & Opportunities

  • Overview

    The engineering program provides you with a bachelor of science in engineering (BSE) in one of four program 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 during 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.
