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