The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences offers B.S. degrees in Civil, Electrical, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering. In addition, there are two interdisciplinary B.S. degrees: the B.S. in Engineering, and the B.S. in Engineering Management which is offered in conjunction with the School of Business Administration. The Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil, Electrical, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering are ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited.
In addition to the Bachelor of Science degrees, the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences also offers a Bachelor of Arts in Engineering in collaboration with the College of Arts and Sciences.
Laptop Requirements: Engineering is a professional field that leverages mathematics and the sciences to design and implement solutions to problems faced by society. The practicing Engineer utilizes not only the fundamentals related to mathematics and the sciences but also computational tools to accomplish his or her tasks. With the latter reality in mind, the School of Engineering (SoE) requires all incoming engineering students to have a laptop computer. The laptop requirement enables instructors to incorporate computational analysis and numerical examples in the classroom for an immediate and powerful praxis of engineering theory. The laptop requirement is platform agnostic (Windows, Mac or Linux. The suggested minimum configuration is available on the School of Engineering website. Note that current netbooks will not have sufficient computational resources to meet the requirements. As part of the laptop requirement, students must also purchase a student version of MATLAB® (a high-level programming language and interactive computational environment). MATLAB® is available through the MathWorks™ website: MathWorks . The school also recommends that students have word processing, presentation and spreadsheet software on their laptop.
HSS Requirements: To complement the technical content of the Engineering curriculum, all B.S. programs require a Humanities and Social Science (HSS) component that encourages the exploration of the Humanities and Social Sciences and the appreciation of diversity in society. HSS electives may not be taken on a pass/no pass basis. A minimum of fifteen credits are required and at least six credits must be from the same department. A current list of approved HSS electives is available on the CEMS Student Services website or in the CEMS Student Services Office (Votey 103).
Students’ HSS electives must include two three-credit University Approved Diversity courses. One three-credit course must be from Category One (Race and Racism in the U.S.) and the second three-credit course can be from either Category One or Category Two (Human and Societal Diversity). See the Diversity course listing in this catalogue. Diversity courses have a D1 or D2 prefix.
