Undergraduate students enter the College of Engineering without a declared major. Each department offers an introductory class for students to learn the basics of each discipline. Our students are required to complete at least two introductory courses in their first year, which will help them choose a major in their second semester.
The College of Engineering is a place for people who desire to solve problems, to discover, to create, to design, to invent, and to innovate—and all of this with the goal of having an impact on society.
