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 fosters innovation and impact through our education and research. We encourage students to solve complex problems through their skills and passion with cutting-edge curricula in a state-of-the-art learning and making environment.
