The School of Business and Engineering offers an engineering program to educate students in civil, software, industrial, and mechanical engineering.
The department offers four majors leading to a bachelor of science degree:
- The BS in civil engineering prepares students for careers in civil engineering. Civil Engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, tunnels, tracks, dams, bridges, airports, and water supply and sewage systems.
- The BS in industrial engineering prepares students for careers in industrial engineering. Industrial engineers are employed throughout business and industry to research, analyze, and determine the most effective and efficient ways to utilize the basic factors of production. Industrial engineers are concerned with increasing productivity through the effective management of people, processes, and technology.
- The BS in mechanical engineering prepares students for careers in mechanical engineering. Mechanical engineers are employed in the research design, development, and manufacturing of broad range of tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices and components.
- The BS in software engineering prepares students for careers in software engineering. Using mathematical analysis and computer science principles, software engineers design, create, test, and evaluate software applications and systems.
Graduates of the engineering program are prepared for professional practice in engineering and industry as well as for advanced study at the graduate level. Specifically graduates will be have:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- an ability to design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability
- an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
- an understand professional and ethical responsibility
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
- a recognition of the need for, and possess the ability to engage in, lifelong learning an ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
An engineering degree prepares you for flexible career and/or education options. In addition to practicing engineering and continuing studies, engineering graduates can earn an MBA, law degree and move into other great careers. Engineering is a great choice that opens up many paths for the future.
All engineering programs will be assessed in the ongoing ABET cycle of accreditation, self-study, and continuous improvement and will seek initial accreditation at the earliest opportunity, Fall 2016.
