Concentration Requirements

 

Engineering majors learn the fundamentals of either civil, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering with emphasis on problem solving, design, and integrated systems. During the junior and senior year the student takes a cohesive set of upper-division engineering courses which together provide depth of knowledge and design content in the chosen engineering concentration. Upon graduation, the engineering concentration is recorded on the student's permanent record. Graduates are well prepared to immediately enter a professional carrer in their concentration area or continue on to pursue a graduate degree in engineering or business.

 

Each student is required to complete a minimum of 27 credit hours of specilaty courses within their chosen engineering concentration area. The concentration requirements for each of the four specialties are listed below.
