The School of Engineering offers a program in General Engineering leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.S.). This program is designed for students with a clear idea of their educational objectives which require a more flexible, interdisciplinary course of study.
This program is suitable for students who desire a strong, broad-based, rigorous engineering background as preparation for fields such as: chemistry, mathematics, medicine, biomedical engineering, law, finance, or entrepreneurship. Each B.S. student is advised from the Dean’s Office, however, students are encouraged to identify academic advisor(s) in other departments who can specifically help them with issues associated with the areas they have chosen as their focus.
Students are required to enroll in 55 core curriculum credits in mathematics, the sciences, and the humanities (similar to the B.E. degree) in their freshman and sophomore years as they prepare to select courses open to all Engineering students. Art, Architecture, and Humanities courses may also be selected as seats in those courses become available and the respective schools/faculty grant permission .
The B.S. program is not suitable for students who wish professional licensure.
