ENGINEERING


Division of Mathematics, Engineering & Computer Science
Robert Keller, Ph.D., Chair

The engineering program combines mechanical and electrical engineering and emphasizes computer control of mechanical systems. Graduates are prepared to design mechatronic, robotic, and “smart” products. This curriculum provides students with several possible paths of study: a major in engineering, an individualized major in engineering studies (recent examples have included engineering management, biomedical engineering and applied physics), or a typical pre-engineering curriculum.

Requirements for the major in Engineering (B.S.):
A grade of C- or better is required in all courses taken for the major.
