Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs & Degrees

Engineering builds on a strong traditional mathematics, science, and engineering core. The Mechanical Engineering emphasis focuses on mechanical design and the electromechanical elements of smart machines.

The mathematics courses listed as cognates for the Engineering degree satisfy the requirements for a minor in mathematics.  A second major in mathematics requires 6 additional credits in mathematics, and a second major in physics requires 14–17 additional credits in physics. See the Mathematics and Physics department listings for details.
