B.S. in Agricultural Engineering
The overall goals of the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering program are to provide a fundamental understanding of the natural, mathematical and engineering sciences and then to apply this understanding to design devices and processes in any general area.
B.S. in Biochemical Engineering
Biochemical Engineering utilizes the governing principles of living systems, properties of biological materials and engineering methodology in the processing of biological materials and in processes using biological agents such as cells, enzymes and antibodies.
B.S. in Biological Engineering
The goals of the Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering are to provide a fundamental understanding of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering and to apply this understanding to design devices and processes related to biosystems.
B.S. in Civil Engineering
Civil engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering. It deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like bridges, roads, canals, dams, and buildings.
B.S. in Computer Systems Engineering
The Computer Systems Engineering undergraduate program of study emphasizes the application of engineering concepts, techniques and methods to the development of systems founded in hardware-software integration. Unlike the traditional focus of computer engineering, computer system engineers will have a greater understanding of computer software development and how to use computers to automate, monitor and control various systems.
B.S. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Electrical & Electronics engineering is a modern field of engineering involving the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism in areas such as power and control systems, telecommunications, and digital signal processing. In this degree program students will learn about the role electrical engineering plays in today’s society and gain fundamental and applied understanding of electrical engineering as a discipline that integrates math, science, and technology while benefiting from a liberal arts education and developing soft skills that will prepare them to be successful in the major and their careers.
B.S. in Environmental Engineering
Environmental issues are paramount in our society. Issues such as energy, water resources and consumption, economic globalization, population growth, climate change, urban sprawl, water quality, solid waste, food production and distribution, and environmental degradation must be addressed to develop a sustainable society. Engineers will be needed to solve the problems associated with these issues.
B.S. in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is a broad discipline that has helped create the modern society that we enjoy. The goals of the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering program are to prepare students to be able to provide solutions to the pressing grand challenges that we now face, with environmental problems, energy concerns, and advances in medical technology as but a few examples.

M.S. in Engineering
The M.S. in Engineering degree provides students with a rigorous, adaptive curriculum and research environment that prepares them to integrate discoveries from multiple fields and address multi-scale problems beyond the bounds of traditional engineering disciplines.
M.S. in Biochemical Engineering
Students and faculty in the Biochemical Engineering program are researching the conversion of raw biomaterials such as woody biomass and industrial biowastes by a wide array of processes into useful products. Research has centered on metabolic engineering, biorefining and carbon cycling.
M.S. in Environmental Engineering
Environmental solutions require a rigorous foundation in the life and physical sciences along with the ability to contribute in creative ways to solving multidisciplinary problems. Priority areas include: integrated water resource management, waste management and assimilation through biological processes, environmental externalities of energy production, and coastal and urban systems.
Ph. D in Engineering
The Ph.D. in Engineering encourages exploration of new engineering approaches and new engineering fields with a rigor for quality and an open structure for connecting and integrating for solving problems.
