About the Program

A current College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) undergraduate student majoring in Bioengineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Robotics Engineering may pursue a concurrent Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree in Engineering Mathematics. This makes it possible for an engineering major to earn two degrees at the same time:  a B.S.E. degree in their principal engineering major and a concurrent B.S.E. degree in Engineering Mathematics. Both degrees must be earned at the same time.

Program Requirements

The Engineering Mathematics degree requires a minimum of fourteen (14) credit hours of advanced mathematics coursework beyond the sixteen (16) credits of mathematics needed for the degree program of the student's principal engineering major. Credits from the courses being used for the concurrent Engineering Mathematics degree do not count toward the student's principal degree. Requirements are available to download (PDF).
