Engineering Science (BS)

Program Goals

The Engineering Science Program (ESP) is based on the 4-year curriculum that includes general education and science courses, core engineering courses, and electives.  Upon completion, students are offered a BS degree in Engineering Science. Students are encouraged to prepare and to take FE exams during their last year of studies.

The goals of the ESP are:

  • To develop future leaders of scientific and engineering endeavors (industry, medicine) who apply a solid foundation in engineering and scientific principles to impact the well-being of the global society and its environment;
  • To provide a setting where teaching effectiveness, creative research, outreach, and innovations in the engineering sciences are integrated to train future leaders who will provide solutions to the challenges of rapid technological advancements.

Engineering coursework includes subjects from Electrical, Computer, Civil, and Environmental Engineering.

Program faculty have developed collaborations with other schools, including the University of Delaware, National Labs, and industry.
