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 technical science base and flexibility to pursue interdisciplinary applications of engineering in the humanities, arts, and sciences. 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 and tailored to the student’s interest.
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 122 credits required.

University General Education Requirements include: (1) 3 credits of Foundational Writing & Information Literacy (FWIL). Students must take ENGS 001 or HCOL 085 (only for students enrolled in the Honors College). Students transferring from the College of Arts and Sciences can use a TAP class to fulfill this requirement; (2) Students must complete 15 credits of approved General Education Electives, including one 3-credit D1 course, a second 3-credit D1 or D2 course, and 3 credits each of Arts and Humanities (AH) and Social Sciences (SS). A single course can satisfy multiple requirements in this category; the student will still need a total of 15 credits.
Free Electives: Students may use free elective credits to pursue coursework germane to their interests, including Professional Development Electives. Students are encouraged to work with their advisor(s) to select courses that complement their curricula and support their academic and career goals. Students should select one course that meets the University Sustainability Requirement (SU) if they have not taken an SU engineering course.
First Year Curriculum: These degree requirements are designed for first-year students. Internal and external transfer students may substitute additional 100-level or higher engineering (BME, CE, EE, ENGR, ME, EMGT) credits for this requirement.
Engineering Science Electives: All BME, CE, EE, ENGR, ME and EMGT courses (except ENGR 010). Must have a minimum of 9 credits at the 200-level.
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 sciences courses with advisor approval. BSE students may not double count BSAD courses as both Tech Electives and Gen Ed.
