130 Credit Hours

Program Learning Outcomes


“Expected student learning outcomes specify the knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes students are expected to attain in courses or in a program.” Page 69. Resource Manual for the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), 2018.

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies

Graduation Requirements


Conferral of a Baccalaureate degree in this program of study is determined by successful completion of the Baccalaureate Graduation Requirements outlined here.

NOTE: Students must earn 42 upper level (3000-4000) credit hours in order to graduate. A total of at least 21 of these upper level credit hours must be completed in the selected major.

Visit this program’s information page for additional program-specific requirements.

Faith, Roots, and Reason (General Education) Requirements - 43 Credit Hours


Engineering majors must meet the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements (Bachelor’s Degrees) as set out in the Faith, Roots, and Reason (General Education) Program. The Faith, Roots, and Reason (General Education) Mathematics and Science requirements are fulfilled through other courses in this major. Only 37 of the 43 credit hours of Faith, Roots, and Reason (General Education) will still be required for the completion of this program.

  • Social Science Recommendation: Engineering majors are strongly recommended to take BUS 2353 Microeconomics to fulfill the Social Science requirement of the Faith, Roots, and Reason (General Education) program.
  • Global Studies Recommendation: Engineering majors are strongly recommended to take BIO 2203 Environment and Society to fulfill the Global Studies requirement of the Faith, Roots, and Reason (General Education) program.

Engineering: Concentration in General Engineering, B.S. Program – 89 Credit Hours


School of Liberal Arts and Sciences Additional Natural Science Requirements - 5 Credit Hours


Students in the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences must take five additional hours of natural science: 1 lab to accompany the course taken for general education. The two natural sciences must be in different areas: one must be a life science (biology) and the other must be a physical science (chemistry, physics, oceanography, earth science, or forensic science). In sum, students are required to take a minimum of 8 hours of natural science courses (one life science and one physical science, with their associated labs).
