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.
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.
