The B.S. in Engineering is available in four concentrations:

The biomedical engineering concentration emphasizes the combination of biomechanics and manufacturing of biomedical devices. The concentration prepares students to contribute to the design and improvement of major health-related devices like artificial hearts and prostheses, health management and care delivery systems, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and devices for automating insulin injections or controlling body functions.

The industrial engineering concentration prepares big-picture thinkers who organize people, material, information, equipment and energy to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems. Students gain strong skills in logistics engineering and enter the workforce prepared for warehouse systems, transportation networks, materials handling devices, and industry supply chains.

The mechanical engineering concentration applies the principles of mathematics, physics, and related engineering sciences to the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment and machinery, medical devices, and more. Students learn concepts of energy conversion, fuel and combustion technologies, biomedical product manufacturing, and noise control and acoustics.

The software engineering concentration prepares students in the analysis, design, validation, implementation, and maintenance of computer software systems, where very high reliability is expected even under demanding conditions. Students learn to conceive and develop high-quality software systems for applications in industry, commerce, engineering, government and research.

With the 4+1 integrated degree program, students can go on to earn an M.S. in Engineering Management with only one additional year of study.

The Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET has accredited the B.S. degree programs in Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering.
