The School offers a four-year ABET accredited undergraduate program in five major engineering disciplines - Biomedical Engineering; Civil Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Materials Engineering; and Mechanical Engineering. The programs are well rounded, with special emphasis given to design engineering. All students complete a senior design project. The first two years emphasize English, math, basic sciences, and some core engineering sciences. The second two years emphasize humanities, social sciences, and engineering courses in the student's chosen engineering discipline. All students receive a broad-based education, as they must satisfy the university core curriculum as specified for engineering majors. Graduate opportunities exist in all of the disciplines of the School.
