Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Return to the College of Engineering

This degree program was established to introduce flexibility into the College of Engineering. Within the 66 credits of the option portion of the program, a student can pursue a focused curriculum in areas such as business administration, industrial management, environmental engineering, biomedical engineering, and pre-medicine. The program of study may be very narrow as in the case of a student wishing to specialize in structural design, foundation and soil mechanics. For another student interested in patent law, the program may be broad, touching on chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering subjects. The individual's program is designed to meet each student's goals.


Admission to the program is restricted. A student requests admission by letter to the associate dean of the College of Engineering, outlining in some detail the particular objective and how the Bachelor of Science in Engineering program may enable the student prepare for career goals.
