Engineering

Engineers are the planners and designers of the technological systems that are the backbone of our modern society. They apply principles of science and mathematics to meet the needs or solve the problems of humankind. These problems typically are multi-faceted and involve the interplay of technological, economic, environmental, sociological, and political components. For this reason, the engineer requires a background in the humanities and Social Sciences as well as in mathematics and natural sciences.

The Engineering program is designed for creative students who want to explore engineering as a potential major. The intent of this program is to provide students a sense of what the engineering profession encompasses while exposing them to engineering concepts to better prepare them for success in engineering at the undergraduate level.
