PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program offers an alternative Engineering option to those students who are interested in Engineering, but not yet committed to one of the traditional engineering fields.

PROGRAM OUTCOMES

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:

• apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
• design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
• function on multidisciplinary teams
• identify, formulate, and solve problems
• communicate effectively
• understand the impact of engineering in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
• engage in life-long learning
• comprehend contemporary issues

Students interested in transferring to WNEU should enroll in this program.

All students are encouraged to check with their transfer institution as to what their requirements are for their particular area of interest so they do not have to take more courses than are needed.

We advise that students start their mathematics courses as soon as they enter the program.

PROGRAM ELECTIVES: 21-28 CREDITS


Select 7 from the following

GENERAL ELECTIVES: 0-4 CREDITS


Sufficient to complete 60 credit graduation requirement

  • General Elective Credits: 0-4

TOTAL: 60-64 CREDITS
