Undergraduate Degree Programs

Degrees

The College of Engineering offers curricula leading to the following degrees and concentrations. Like each degree program, concentrations consist of specific course requirements, which are available from individual departments. All concentrations are achievable without adding to degree requirements.

Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

Concentrations available for undergraduates within the department include: aerospace engineering (for mechanical engineers), bioengineering, computational engineering, control and mechanical systems, design and manufacturing, energy, materials, solid mechanics, and thermal and fluid sciences.

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

One certificate program (in materials) and three curricular sequence options (biomolecular engineering, environmental chemical engineering, and pre-med) are available in the department. These provide deeper background in specific areas that students may choose to explore.

Civil Engineering and Geological Sciences

As they enter their junior year, students majoring in civil engineering must select a concentration in either structural or environmental engineering as part of their course of study.

Computer Science and Engineering

Undergraduates pursuing a bachelor’s degree from this department may choose to specialize in one of three concentrations — bioinformatics and computational biology, information technology leadership, or media computing.

Electrical Engineering

  • B.S. in Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering undergraduates may pursue concentrations including: communications, energy, multimedia, and semiconductors and nanotechnology.

To complete the requirements for an engineering degree, each student must take and pass all of the specified courses the given degree, and accompanying minors or concentrations, and must earn the total minimum number of course credit hours specified by the University.

 

Minors

All students may pursue a minor, which requires at least four courses beyond degree requirements. Engineering students may pursue any minor for which they are qualified, including those offered by the College of Arts & Letters. Minors offered by the College of Engineering include: bioengineering, computational engineering, energy engineering, and environmental geosciences.
