The Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree is designed to provide:
- a part-time evening program offering in the engineering field (with a full time option that includes day classes).
- a program tailored to the adult learner, who may already have previous college experience, an engineering-related career, and/or very clear professional objectives for continued study in engineering.
- both a firm grounding in the fundamentals of engineering science and engineering design.
- numerous elective options to allow for flexibility and customization of the technical focus of the degree. Suggested elective tracks in product design (mechanical design, CAD, materials, design for quality) and enterprise systems (manufacturing systems, facilities, Lean manufacturing, quality assurance) will be available, but other unique interdisciplinary specialties will be accommodated.
Program Educational Objectives
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree will prepare graduates who will:
- use their engineering, design, business and problem-solving skills to contribute professionally in an industrial environment.
