The Bachelor of Science in Engineering program provides a general, flexible, interdisciplinary academic experience in the engineering field. It offers a firm grounding in the fundamentals of engineering science and engineering design, as well as numerous elective options that offer the opportunity to customize the technical focus of the degree program. Suggested elective tracks in the areas of product design and enterprise systems are available, but other unique plans of study can be accommodated. The program is tailored to the adult learner, who may have previous college experience, an engineering-related career, and very clear professional objectives for continued study in engineering, coupled with a desire to pursue the degree using part-time and evening hours.

Program Educational Objectives

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering will produce engineering graduates who in the first few years after graduation will:

  • Use their engineering, design, business and problem-solving skills to contribute professionally in an industrial environment
  • Demonstrate initiative, leadership, ability to work as part of a professional team, and continued development in their professional careers
  • Understand the impact of their professional activities on society

Student Outcomes

Upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering program, the student will have:

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
