Engineering Studies Concentration

Our engineering studies curriculum provides students with the mathematical and analytical skills that constitute the foundations of engineering, supporting a wide array of fields including mechanical, electrical, civil, and environmental engineering. In addition, the concentration offers practical, applied skills such as working with laboratory instrumentation, design software, and/or fabrication techniques. Completing this concentration in combination with a major in a natural science or math prepares students to pursue graduate work in engineering. To get started in this concentration, begin by taking science courses that fit your interests and math courses based on your math placement.
