Engineering B.S.E.

All students must meet the University Requirements .

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 will plan an integrated series of courses directed towards the concentration. Among the possible engineering concentrations are: aeronautical engineering, bioengineering, chemical engineering, computer engineering, power engineering, traffic engineering, geological engineering, etc. Other concentrations may be approved upon application to the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences Studies Committee.

Candidates for this degree must fulfill the following requirements, which include the core program, and present a total of 123-126 credits. Any substitutions in the engineering core program require the approval of the College’s Studies Committee.
