Important Points
  • Choosing electives carefully, with the help of an advisor, students can complete a focus in aerospace/mechanical, biomedical/chemical, civil, environmental, or industrial engineering.
  • Students routinely elect to take up to 70 credit hours to enhance transferability.
  • Recommended social sciences electives are ECO 2610: Macroeconomic Principles and/or ECO 2620: Microeconomic Principles.
Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  1. Apply differential calculus, integral calculus, and ordinary differential equations to the solution of engineering problems.
  2. Create programming scripts that can be used in the solution of engineering level numerical analysis problems.
  3. Identify and differentiate the various fields of engineering, including entrance requirements and ultimate career outcomes.
  4. Apply engineering analysis skills in the area of rigid body statics, rigid body dynamics, strength of materials, electrical circuit analysis, and modern physics.
  5. Develop calculus-based physics skills including mechanics, heat, thermodynamics, electricity & magnetism, and light.
  6. Develop an understanding of chemistry related topics such as structure and bonding of matter, stoichiometry, solutions, kinetics, thermodynamics, equilibrium, nuclear and organic chemistry.
