Undergraduate Programs

The School of Engineering offers courses leading to the Bachelor of Science in five departments of engineering: biomedical, chemical and biological, civil and environmental, electrical and computer, and mechanical. Also, the computer science department offers a program leading to the Bachelor of Science through the School of Engineering. Students may also enroll in special programs in the School of Engineering in preparation for careers in architecture, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, law, public health, human factors, urban planning, and biomedical engineering. The school offers twelve Bachelor of Science degrees: Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, Bachelor of Science in engineering science, Bachelor of Science in engineering, Bachelor of Science in engineering physics, and Bachelor of Science.

The programs of study leading to these degrees differ in structure and the manner in which they are administered. Departments administer professional degrees in programs accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) or the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org, for students who wish to be recognized as practicing professionals, especially those who wish to become registered professional engineers. Whereas the professional degree programs are the most structured, the Bachelor of Science degree program is the most flexible. Through consultation with an individual faculty member in the School of Engineering, students may pursue an individualized program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. The Bachelor of Science in engineering is administered by engineering departments and allows for some departure from the curriculum for the professional degree. The Bachelor of Science degree in computer science is administered by the Department of Computer Science. The School of Engineering, in cooperation with the Department of Physics, offers a bachelor of science in engineering physics. This program combines a mastery of the fundamental principles of physics with the professional aspects of engineering.

The School of Engineering also offers exceptional engineering students the option of pursuing one of two combined degree programs: a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree (B.S.–M.S.) or a Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering degree (B.S.–M.Eng.).

Every breakthrough presents the next generation with a new set of problems to solve. As imaginative as artists, young engineers stand to turn present challenges into tomorrow's breakthrough ideas. We are inventors and innovators. We improvise as readily as jazz pioneers. We share the same concerns about the future of humankind as poets and political philosophers. The difference is we don't just think about the future. We make it.
