Engineering Science is an Engineering degree which offers flexible curricula in several interdisciplinary areas of concentration.
All areas of concentration contain in-depth exposure to science combined with in-depth exposure to engineering.
The goal of the program is to develop the student's ability to think analytically across disciplines and tackle future technical challenges that require a thorough understanding of a discipline in the physical sciences and/or mathematics combined with engineering.

Engineering Science combines a study of an engineering disciple
with the study of a basic science. This
provides the educational background for the study of multi-disciplinary
problems. Engineering Science is divided
into five curricula: Engineering Physics, Nano-Physics/Material Science,
Nano-Chemistry/Bioengineering, Nuclear and Engineering Mechanics. These areas allow the study of problems in
development of electronic and biologic materials, electronic and optical
devices, nuclear energy and fluid and solid mechanics. Engineering science graduates are involved in
design, development, research, management, and related activities in these
fields. The breadth and diversity of the
profession requires an undergraduate curriculum that provides a sound
foundation in the basic sciences, computational skills, and the fundamentals of
engineering and engineering design. This curriculum provides a base for future
professional growth and is also an excellent background for those who wish to
pursue careers in other professions including management, law, or medicine. The
Engineering Science program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation
Commission of ABET. For more information on the program,
contact email@example.com or see the Engineering Science curriculum.
For information on the Engineering Science
program please see the program manual or contact the Mechanical Engineering and
Materials Science Undergraduate Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org (or in room 636
(608 Benedum Hall) is the Program Director and the administrative home of the program is the MEMS department.
Four areas of concentration are offered (Engineering Physics, Nanotechnology, Mechanics and Nuclear).
The Engineering Physics curriculum remains the same. Nanotechnology has two tracks, one emphasizes Physics/Materials and the other emphasizes Chemistry/Bioengineering. Both have substantial flexibility.
The program will approve new areas of concentration based on interest (potential tracks include Computational Science, Energy Science, etc. - we are looking for your input!).
All Engineering Science curricula require substantial additional higher-level science and mathematics courses over and above a typical Engineering Major. This is a challenging major. All areas of concentration include a two-term capstone design experience.
