Programs in Engineering
The Engineering programs are designed to help a student enter the engineering profession as an experienced problem solver. Engineers in the industry are expected to manage products, materials and processes. They are expected to be able to cost a product, determine the rate of return on an investment, find the break-even point in manufacturing, and price the marketing of a product. Some engineers do more management than others; however, every engineer needs fundamental engineering concepts and knowledge that form the basis for the profession.
The programs in Engineering provide coursework experience for students wishing to enter the industry as engineers. In addition to technical content, these courses provide practice in forming and working in teams, preparing and presenting oral and written technical reports, and developing advanced computer skills. Engineering design caps the program with students designing and constructing engineering projects.
