Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College offers four-year undergraduate programs in engineering and computer science. The Freshman year program (Pre-Engineering) includes an introduction to engineering designed to orient students to the practice of engineering and help select a major. Each curriculum stresses hands-on laboratory experiences and culminates in a significant senior design project. Participation in beyond-the-classroom activities (such as internships, research experiences, and co-ops) is strongly encouraged. Numerous opportunities exist for undergraduate participation in research projects. A fast-track B.S./M.S. and B.S./M.B.A. are available.
