The curriculum is designed to comply with the requirements of ABET accreditation. It includes courses in basic sciences and mathematics, engineering sciences, engineering design, communication skills, and humanities and social sciences. Lab hands-on experience and emphasis on design are important elements that are integrated throughout the curriculum.
The requirements of the BCE include:
• At least 30 credit hours of mathematics and basic sciences,
• At least 66 credit hours of engineering sciences and engineering design, and
• At least 15 credit hours of social sciences and humanities, excluding language and technical writing courses.
