Our Mission

A bachelor of science degree in either branch of engineering prepares students for employment in industry or further study in a wide range of graduate programs by utilizing the Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate (CDIO) approach. The core courses in the Division of Science and Mathematics provide a broad foundation of science, mathematics and engineering along with all prerequisites needed for graduate and/or professional development. The two-semester senior design courses will require students to apply the scientific and technological foundation to real engineering projects. Students may​ obtain a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering​.
