Undergraduate Degree Programs
The College of Engineering offers curricula leading to the following degrees and concentrations. Like each degree program, concentrations consist of specific course requirements, which are available from individual departments. All concentrations are achievable without adding to degree requirements.
Concentrations available for undergraduates within the department include: aerospace engineering (for mechanical engineers), bioengineering, computational engineering, control and mechanical systems, design and manufacturing, energy, materials, solid mechanics, and thermal and fluid sciences.
One certificate program (in materials) and three curricular sequence options (biomolecular engineering, environmental chemical engineering, and pre-med) are available in the department. These provide deeper background in specific areas that students may choose to explore.
- B.S. in Civil Engineering
- B.S. in Environmental Earth Sciences (available to students entering with sophomore status in Fall of 2013 and beyond)
- B.S. in Environmental Engineering (available to students entering with sophomore status in Fall of 2013 and beyond)
- B.S. in Environmental Geosciences (available to students entering program with sophomore status prior to Fall of 2013)
As they enter their junior year, students majoring in civil engineering must select a concentration in either structural or environmental engineering as part of their course of study.
Undergraduates pursuing a bachelor’s degree from this department may choose to specialize in one of three concentrations — bioinformatics and computational biology, information technology leadership, or media computing.
Electrical engineering undergraduates may pursue concentrations including: communications, energy, multimedia, and semiconductors and nanotechnology.
To complete the requirements for an engineering degree, each student must take and pass all of the specified courses the given degree, and accompanying minors or concentrations, and must earn the total minimum number of course credit hours specified by the University.
Although minors offered by the College of Engineering are geared toward engineering undergraduates, any student who satisfies the course pre-requisites may apply to complete an engineering minor, through the offering department. Minors offered by the College of Engineering require at least four courses (12 credit hours) past degree requirements and include:
|College of Engineering||Minor in Engineering Corporate Practice|
Environmental Earth Sciences
Concentrations are restricted to particular majors, may typically be completed through careful selection of departmental and technical electives, and are completed within departmental guidelines. Current concentration offerings include:
Environmental (Civil Engineering majors only)
Dual Degree (Five-year Degree)
The College offers several options for students to earn dual-degrees. Most of these programs will require five years to complete.
One additional history or social science course,
Students who join the Reilly Dual-Degree Program will also have access to additional financial aid in their fifth year of study.
Undergraduate financial aid continues in your fourth year in this dual-degree program. Financial aid for the fifth year comes through the M.B.A. program and may result in a different aid package.
Undergraduate financial aid for students pursuing these two degrees may not continue beyond the eighth semester.
