Program Overview

Engineering is one of the largest professions in the United States with over one million jobs in fields ranging from airplane design to pollution control. The four largest branches are civil, computer, electrical and mechanical engineering. All engineering branches place a heavy emphasis on problem solving. Engineering education focuses on teaching mathematical, scientific and engineering principles and their application to the creative and effective solution of problems.
