Learning Outcomes College of Engineering and Computing 

The Engineering Science program is a non-discipline-specific engineering degree program which enables students to engage in interdisciplinary studies combining courses and learning skills from several of the discipline-specific engineering programs as well as complementary studies in the sciences, liberal arts, and business. It gives students the flexibility to begin their studies or take prerequisite courses in a graduate professional field such as law, business, medicine, or education, while completing their undergraduate engineering degree.

Learning Outcomes

The program outcomes are that students who graduate with a B.S. in Engineering Sciences will be able to …

  • apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  • design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • 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.
  • function on multidisciplinary teams.
  • identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • understand professional and ethical responsibility.
  • communicate effectively.
  • understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  • know of contemporary issues.
  • use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary forengineering practice.


Degree Requirements (129 Hours)


1. The liberal arts courses must include at least one history course, one fine arts course, and one social science course. The College maintains a list of approved history, fine arts, and social science electives.

2. Engineering electives require five courses, including at least two upper division courses, in each of two engineering disciplines. The College maintains a list of approved course sequences.
