Engineering (ENGR)

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering program includes a required core of engineering courses as well as coursework in science and mathematics. In addition, the program requires completion of one of three concentrations that enable students to tailor the program to meet careers goals.

  • The Civil Engineering Concentration covers the aspects of structural analysis of concrete design, wastewater and drinking water system design, hydrology, and transportation engineering.
  • The Industrial Engineering Concentration focuses on reliability, maintainability, operations, and production planning.
  • The Mechanical Engineering Concentration focuses on machinery dynamics, engineering design and management, heat transfer, and finite elemental analysis.

Current engineering application and design considerations are explored with emphasis on experiential learning opportunities engaging students in research, testing, design, and analysis. Students also develop essential knowledge, skills, and abilities assuring a comprehensive understanding of engineering principles and disciplines

Graduates of the program possess the hands-on experience and technical problem-solving skills necessary to be successful in engineering careers.

Accreditation

The University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
