ENGINEERING SCIENCE


INTRODUCTION

The curricula in the engineering sciences have been designed to prepare a student to fill the gap between the pure and applied sciences. The programs have been planned to enable the graduate to meet, work, and communicate with scientists and engineers at all levels of research and development, design and production, sales and distribution and to participate in the rapid and efficient translation of the latest scientific discoveries into technological achievements.

The general curriculum outlined below has been developed to give the student a firm foundation in the engineering sciences supported by a thorough grounding and facility in mathematics, physics and chemistry. In addition, each student will choose an area of specialization in at least one of the Engineering fields of architectural, civil, biomedical, electrical, industrial, or mechanical, and mathematics, chemistry or physics. By being well grounded in both the basic and applied sciences, the student, upon graduation, will be well prepared to assume responsibilities in his/her field of specialization or continue his/her professional development through graduate studies.

The engineering science program is intended primarily for students who expect to pursue graduate studies, and it will not satisfy the licensure requirements for professional engineering registration.

Premedical Studies: When BIL 150 and 160 are added to the course sequence for engineering science, basic premedical requirements are satisfied. Additional specific courses, such as genetics or biochemistry, may be required for admission to certain medical schools. For optimum timing and course selection students who combine premedical studies and engineering science should consult the faculty advisor for engineering science and the Coordinator, Committee on Premedical Studies.

Because of the nature of the curriculum and its goals, the student must maintain a B average. The degree of Bachelor of Science Engineering Science is awarded upon successful completion of the program.

The required curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science (General Concentration) is shown below as is a typical premed curriculum. A Professional Chemistry Concentration in the Engineering Science Program is available (the Professional Chemistry Program, approved by the American Chemical Society, is also available in the College of Arts and Sciences).


MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Engineering Science program is to provide excellent undergraduate and graduate education in engineering that will prepare graduates to meet Societies changing needs and aspirations.


EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the Engineering Science program are to educate engineers who:

• have a sound background in the fundamentals of engineering science grounded in mathematics, physics and chemistry
• have abilities and knowledge expected by graduate programs
• are prepared to enter graduate programs with a strong background in pure science
