The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Civil Engineering is designed to provide students with an education that addresses the emerging field of technology-enhanced (Smart) infrastructure, as well as fundamental concepts in environmental, geotechnical, materials, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering. In addition to being capable of designing a range of infrastructure assets, graduates will have experience with sensor devices, data transmission and storage systems, big data and machine learning protocols, predicative modeling, and automated infrastructure management technologies. Further, students will be prepared to take the Fundamentals of Engineering and, later in their professional career, Principles and Practice of Engineering exams. The B.S. major in Civil engineering will seek accreditation in accordance with the process specified by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. 

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Electrical Engineering provides students the background that is essential for the conception, design, development, and manufacture of electrical, electronic and information technology products and systems. Students may specialize in the areas of networks and communication systems, micro and nano devices and systems, or computer engineering. Proficiency in mathematics is especially important in Electrical Engineering. The B.S. with a major in Electrical Engineering and the B.S. with a major in Electrical Engineering with Computer Engineering Concentration are both accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org).

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Industrial Engineering provides students the background that is essential for improving the productivity, quality, safety, and cost effectiveness of all types of systems and processes. Industrial engineers are typically engaged in the areas of quality assurance, ergonomics, production and operations management, facilities design, work design, system optimization, information technology, and industrial safety. The B.S. major in Industrial Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org).

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Manufacturing Engineering is designed to provide students with the mathematics, science, management, engineering, and applications skills needed to become manufacturing engineers. These engineers are typically responsible for promoting manufacturability, process planning, tool design, cost estimation, factory layout, work methods, quality assurance, automation, and systems integration. The degree has a concentration in general manufacturing or in mechanical systems. The B.S. major in Manufacturing Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org).
