B.S. in Engineering

Secure and apply mathematics, science, economics, and social and practical knowledge to invent, innovate, design, build, maintain, research, and improve structures, machines, tools, systems, components, materials, processes, solutions, and organizations. Become proficient in areas including operations, performance testing, manufacturing, cost scheduling, benefit-cost analysis, training and support, and sustainability. Establish a commitment to the professional and ethical standards of engineering, and recognize the importance of community and professional service.

What you’ll study

Explore the techniques, skills, and modern tools for engineering practice. Design a system, component, or process. Conduct experiments, and analyze and interpret data. Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. Analyze technical, environmental, and societal issues related to engineering designs and technology systems in the areas of biomedical, industrial, and systems engineering. 

How you’ll learn more

Beginning in the first year of the program, participate in hands-on project applications of engineering, and function on multidisciplinary teams.

Where it can take you

An Engineering degree is a pathway to work in a career in engineering, health care, banking and finance, manufacturing, process engineering, plant management, or transportation systems.
