The Department: The mission of the Engineering Science Department is to provide students with a broad-based undergraduate engineering education by offering a design-oriented, multi-disciplinary engineering science curriculum in the context of the University’s traditions of the liberal arts and sciences.
The curriculum emphasizes an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of the physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences that form the foundation for technical work in all fields of engineering. Some specialization is available through elective courses in Chemical, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, taken during the junior and senior years. The program provides significant hands-on experience in engineering laboratories and participation in engineering design projects throughout the eight-semester engineering design course sequence. The emphasis on fundamentals is intended to prepare students to deal with the rapid pace of technological change and the interdisciplinary demands of today’s, and tomorrow’s, engineering practice. The laboratory and design portions of the program provide the student with a balanced perspective of the realities and limitations required for practical problem solving.
The Department currently has ten full-time faculty, each with a Ph.D. (four EEs, two ChEs, and four MEs). There are approximately 183 engineering students in an ABET-accredited program. Faculty are involved in scholarly work individually, in collaboration with other faculty in the Department and the University, and/or with outside companies and organizations.
Well-equipped classrooms, laboratories, computer networks and shops support the curriculum and research. Study areas are in close proximity to the department offices, facilitating cooperation, interactive learning, and intellectual excitement.
