B.E. in Engineering
The B.E. program is more broadly focused than the B.S. in engineering science programs. The B.E. is designed to provide students the opportunity to gain an understanding of engineering, scientific, and technical knowledge, which will enhance their career objectives in such areas as engineering science, medicine, law, professional education, public policy, military, management, and sales.
Minimum Total Credit Hours: 127
General Education Requirements
Students must complete at least 18 semester hours of general education requirements: 3 hours in humanities, 3 hours in fine arts, 3 hours in humanities/fine arts, 6 hours in social science, and the remaining 3 hours can be in any of the humanities/fine arts, social science, or general education courses as specified by the School of Engineering.
Candidates for the B.E. degree must complete the following courses: Writ 100, Writ 101, or Hon 101; Writ 102, Liba 102, or Hon 102; Math 261, 262, 263, 264, 353; Chem 105, 106, 115, 116, and Phys 211, 212, 221, 222; Csci 251; Engr 100, 309, 310, 313, 314, 321, 323, 330, 360, 361, 400, 450; Manf 460; 9 hours of technical engineering electives; Econ 310; 3 hours in humanities, 3 hours in fine arts, 3 hours in humanities/fine arts, 3 hours in social science, and the remaining 3 hours can be in any of the humanities/fine arts, social science, or general education courses as specified by the School of Engineering; 27 hours of an approved emphasis area. The qualifications for the 9 hours of technical electives: any combination of courses offered by the School of Engineering with one course at the 200 level or higher and at least two courses at the 300 level or higher, for a combined total of 9 credit hours. For students in the 3+3 pre-law studies emphasis, Law 515 and Law 568 will count as 6 hours toward the 9 hours of technical electives. Those courses will substitute for a 200 level or higher and one 300 level or higher course.
Other Academic Requirements
Students must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA in the emphasis classes for graduation.
This approach to the Bachelor of Engineering degree is based on individually designed curricula that permit the student to obtain a strong background in science and technology while simultaneously giving the student a broad education outside these areas of study. The 27 hours of emphasis courses must be organized around a coherent theme and must be pre- approved by the director of general engineering.
