The School of Engineering offers a program in General Engineering leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.). This program is designed for students with a clear idea of their educational objectives which require a more flexible, interdisciplinary course of study.
This program is suitable for students who desire a strong, broad-based, rigorous engineering background as preparation for fields such as: computer science, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, biomedical engineering, law, business, or entrepreneurship. Each B.S.E. student's program is administered by an advisor assigned by the dean's office who closely develops a coherent educational plan with the student.
Students are required to enroll in 55 core curriculum credits in mathematics, the sciences, and the humanities (similar to the B.E. degree) as they prepare to select courses open to all Engineering students. Art, Architecture, and Humanities courses may also be selected as seats in those courses become available and the respective schools/faculty grant permission.
The School of Engineering has proposed a BS in Chemistry and a BS in Computer Science to the New York State Department of Education. For students interested in these fields, it is advised that they apply to this B.S.E. program. The B.S.E. program is not suitable for students who wish professional licensure.
