The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences offers instruction leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree. This degree is designed for those students desiring a program with a strong engineering science base in preparation for an interdisciplinary engineering specialty. Each student will be expected to declare a concentration before completing the first four semesters of study. At that time, the student and advisor(s) will plan an integrated series of courses directed towards the concentration. Possible concentrations include: aeronautical engineering, materials engineering, chemical engineering, computer engineering, power engineering, traffic engineering, geological engineering, mechatronics/robotics, etc.
The Curriculum for the B.S. in Engineering
Students must meet University requirements. Note that the University's Quantitative Reasoning (QR) requirement is built into the BS Engineering curriculum. Minimum of 120 credits required; 112-116 credits specified below.

General Education Electives: 9 credits of approved General Education Electives. Students should select a Gen Ed course that meets the University Sustainability Requirement (SU) if they have not taken an SU engineering course. Students may not double count BSAD courses as both Gen Ed and Tech Electives.
Engineering Science Electives: All BME, CE, EE, ENGR and ME courses (except ENGR 010). Must have a minimum of 9 credits at the 200-level.
First Year Design: This degree requirement is designed for first-year students. Internal and external transfer students may substitute 100-level or higher engineering (BME, CE, EE, ENGR, ME) credits for this requirement.
Capstone Design I and II courses must have the same course prefix.
Technical Electives: Any 100-level or higher course in CEMS or BSAD; natural or physical sciences courses with advisor approval. BSE students may not double count BSAD courses as both Tech Electives and Gen Ed.
