Other Student Support Programs

1) Numerous tutoring resources are available to the student, free of charge, through the Math, Reading and Writing Centers as well as the School of Engineering Tutoring Center. Other workshops/ programs are available through the Office of Academic Support Services.
2) Students experiencing academic difficulties have the option of registering with Academic Support Services which, through intensive coaching and counseling by a faculty or staff member, works with the student in developing strategies to successfully complete their university studies.
3) Disabilities Services serves as a campus advocate for students with disabilities and ensures that all students have an equal opportunity to access academic programs and other aspects of university life.
4) The student may choose to enroll as Engineering Undecided upon entering the School of Engineering. This allows the student to defer a choice of major until the end of the first semester of the freshmen year.
5) The Engineering Living Learning Community provides engineering students the opportunity to share common residential and academic experiences focused on developing knowledge about engineering through faculty-planned activities and events.
6) The Office of Student Retention and Success works closely with the academic divisions, student services, and the student body to promote academic and social success. The Office of Student Retention and Success support the Engineering Departments in monitoring the academic progress of freshman and upperclassmen in academic difficulty and referring students to the appropriate campus resources.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Senior Project is a 4.0 credit, two semester course sequence given during the senior year. It is structured to allow students, working in teams, to solve real world problems provided by faculty and industry. An oral presentation is given before a panel of practicing engineers and executives at the conclusion of the second semester. This sequence stresses written and oral communication skills, budgeting resources, team building as well as technical ability.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

The School of Engineering provides programs that combine theory with practice to educate men and women who can contribute to the solution of today's problems. The curricula comprise a mix of basic science, engineering science, engineering design, practical engineering applications, and electives from the humanities and social sciences. Majors in biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering are offered. Interested students can pursue a dual degree in biomedial/chemical engineering, biomedical/electrical engineering, biomedical/mechanical engineering, or electrical/mechanical engineering. Dual degrees are also available in Chemical Engineering/Chemistry, Electrical Engineering/Physics. and Mechanical Engineering/Physics. Students may defer their decision on a major until the sophomore year.

Majors offered by the departments of Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS:

Widener University's School of Engineering is dedicated to providing quality undergraduate and graduate education and to advancing the state of knowledge in engineering, with the aim of preparing graduates for successful professional careers.

Widener provides undergraduate engineering students with an optional four year co-op program. This allows students to spend one four-month and one eight-month periods working in industry or government. The courses in the co-op program are identical to those of the non co-op programs. Students who cannot participate in the co-op program are advised to contact their department and Career Services for summer internship opportunities.

In addition, Minors in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering,Mechanical Engineering and Robotics Engineering are available for all undergraduate majors. Additionally, minors can be arranged in biology, business, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics and other disciplines.

A Bachelor of Science/Master of Engineering Program is an accelerated program that makes it possible for engineering students to complete both their bachelor of science and master of engineering degrees in just four to five years.

The Engineering Honors Program offers an exciting opportunity for academically talented students to enrich their engineering education with advanced coursework, collaboration with faculty on research, community engagement and personal/professional development opportunities. The Engineering Honors Program is available to qualified students pursuing any of the program options.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
