The School of Engineering offers programs to educate students in civil, software, industrial, and mechanical engineering.
The department offers four majors leading to a bachelor of science degree:
- BS in civil engineering prepares students for careers in civil engineering. Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, tunnels, tracks, dams, bridges, airports, and water supply and sewage systems.
- BS in industrial engineering prepares students for careers in industrial engineering. Industrial engineers are employed throughout business and industry to research, analyze, and determine the most effective and efficient ways to utilize the basic factors of production. Industrial engineers are concerned with increasing productivity through the effective management of people, processes, and technology.
- BS in mechanical engineering prepares students for careers in mechanical engineering. Mechanical engineers are employed in the research design, development, and manufacturing of broad range of tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices and components.
- BS in software engineering prepares students for careers in software engineering. Using mathematical analysis and computer science principles, software engineers design, create, test, and evaluate software applications and systems.
Through exposure to the University Curriculum, foundational coursework in science and mathematics, major field courses and extra-curricular activities, graduates will achieve intellectual proficiencies in critical thinking and reasoning, scientific literacy, quantitative reasoning, information fluency, and creative thinking and visual literacy. They will also achieve interpersonal proficiencies in written and oral communication, responsible citizenship, diversity awareness and sensitivity, and social intelligence.
An engineering degree prepares you for flexible career and/or education options. In addition to practicing engineering and continuing studies, engineering graduates can earn an MBA, law degree and move into other great careers. Engineering is a great choice that opens up many paths for the future.
All engineering programs will be assessed in the ongoing ABET cycle of accreditation, self-study, and continuous improvement and will seek initial accreditation at the earliest opportunity, Fall 2016.
