The BS in Engineering Program at ECU
Our country, now more than ever, needs engineers who are interdisciplinary problem solvers. The engineering profession is quickly changing due to the global economy and the growth of technology. ECU engineering meets the challenges with our unique BS in engineering program.
The medical profession relies on the general practitioner to solve many medical problems. In engineering, the general engineer is needed to cost effectively solve interdisciplinary engineering problems. ECU engineers are equipped to handle complex assignments based on a unique curriculum that spans many engineering disciplines.
In response to the demand for well-rounded engineers, the ECU engineering program prepares students to become leaders and decision makers with strong, applications-based engineering abilities. ECU engineering students build an interdisciplinary engineering foundation that includes classes in basic sciences, engineering sciences, and engineering design with a strong emphasis in critical areas such as mechanics, materials, control systems, and design-decision analysis.
Building on this common foundation, the ECU engineer also specializes in a particular field of study by choosing an engineering concentration for the final 26 hours of study. These concentrations cover emerging and fast-growth engineering fields, guaranteeing career skills demanded by a global economy.
