General Information


Bachelor of Science

As a multidisciplinary program, students receive instruction in essential engineering topics and application to the major branches of engineering. Within the core program, two electives provide an opportunity to further explore an area of interest. Students desiring additional depth in a particular engineering discipline may apply to pursue a concentration, which requires additional work beyond that required for the core B.S. program. The B.S. program prepares graduates to take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and work in industry or pursue graduate studies in engineering or in complementary fields such as business, law and medicine.
