Information on each of the Engineering majors, minors and concentrations is linked below. Students must declare their engineering major by the time they register for their junior courses. Those looking to add another dimension to their Bachelor of Science degree at a time when the demand for interdisciplinary engineers continues to grow should review the information on minors and/or concentrations. Students interested in minors outside the College of Engineering can find more information here.
Students interested in the Modular Medical/Dental Integrated Program (MMEDIC) or the STEM Educator-Engineer Program (STEEP) will find more information on these under Special Programs.
