Engineering Science (BS)
What is Engineering Science?
Engineering Science is a broad-based interdisciplinary discipline that integrates different scientific and mathematics principles, engineering concepts with the arts, humanities, social sciences, to sustainably tackle contemporary challenges and advance the well-being of global society. Engineering Science is an ideal preparation for graduates to lead national and international interdisciplinary teams in a diverse array of science and engineering projects in industry, and is an excellent background for those who wish to pursue careers in other professions such as law, education, medicine, business, politics, and public service.
Engineering Science at Lincoln University
At Lincoln University, Engineering Science is offered as an undergraduate Engineering Degree through the College of Science and Technology. The Engineering Science Program (ESP) is based on a 4-year curriculum that includes a general education component, fundamental mathematics and science courses, core engineering courses, and electives. The program seeks to provide students with a broad education emphasizing an excellence in scientific and engineering fundamentals.
The ESP offers flexible curricula in two interdisciplinary areas of concentration; () Civil and Environmental Engineering, and (ii) Electrical and Computer Engineering. Both areas of concentration include a culminating two-term capstone design experience. Upon completion, students are offered a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Engineering Science.
The goals of the ESP are:
to develop future leaders who apply scientific and engineering principles to impact the well-being of the global society and its environment
to provide a setting where effective teaching, creative research, outreach, and innovations in the engineering sciences are integrated to train future leaders who will provide solutions to tackle future technical and societal challenges.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The ESP prepares undergraduate students for employment and/or advanced studies with four primary constituencies: industry, the national laboratories, state and federal agencies, and academia (e.g., graduate research programs).
Within 3-5 years of graduation, graduates are expected to:
engage in ongoing professional development activities including but not limited to graduate study, continuing education, leadership and management training, certification and licensure
encourage and foster future generations of engineers through mentoring, service, and outreach
advance and take on leadership roles in professional and/or community life
At the time of graduation, Engineering Science graduates are expected to attain:
(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
(c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs with realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
(d) ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
(g) an ability to communicate effectively
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
