General Engineering

The College of Engineering offers a General Engineering (or “undeclared” engineering) program to freshmen and sophomores. This option is designed for students who would like to go into engineering, but have not decided which specific area. Although this is not an actual degree, this program allows students to take 3-4 semesters of classes (such as calculus, physics, technical electives, and other gen ed’s) that will count toward any engineering major. This gives our students time to decide which area of engineering best fits them. By the end of their sophomore year, or sooner if they prefer, they should declare a major and begin taking classes in the department of their choice.

The College of Engineering degree programs are:

Architectural Engineering
Biological Systems Engineering
Chemical Engineering
Civil Engineering
Computer Engineering
Computer Science
Construction Science and Management
Electrical Engineering
Industrial Engineering
Information Systems
Mechanical Engineering (with a Nuclear option)
