When there’s a problem, the world calls on engineers for its solutions. That’s why we make sure our students are prepared to answer. To help prepare the next generation of engineering talent to answer those calls for our nation and the world, we bring real-world problems into the classroom, and the flexibility to take their degree in any number of directions.

With a hands-on approach to engineering, our ABET-certified programs emphasize development and design to help students stand out to employers for internships and jobs upon graduating. The curricula consist of three main components: math and science, liberal arts, and technical content specific to the engineering majors. In the first two years, the curriculum of all the engineering programs is very similar, allowing students to transfer easily between programs during this period. The coursework during the last two years is major-specific and can be tailored to meet the student's interests.

Engineering Degrees and Advising

In the first semester in residence, each engineering major will be assigned to a faculty adviser. The student will be required to consult with their advisor at least once each semester. By the end of the first year, engineering majors will choose the department in which they wish to take their degree. The student will consult with the department chair. When accepted, the student will be assigned to an advising faculty member of the designated department. Changes in a student's program must be made in consultation with the adviser. Advanced placement is possible for high school students with the proper background and achievement.
