Why Engineering Plus? In Engineering Plus, you learn to create what you dream through hands-on, team-based design. Engineering Plus is an ABET accredited degree made up of Foundational Coursework, Engineering Core courses, a selected e+ Emphasis (in Aerospace, Architectural, Civil, Electrical, Environmental or Mechanical Engineering), plus a chosen e+ Concentration either within or external to engineering. An e+ Emphasis establishes a disciplinary engineering foundation, while an e+ Concentration allows students to explore an additional passion, preparing them for a broad range of career opportunities post-graduation. Students gain confidence and professional skills emphasizing leadership, collaboration, and communication through multiple team-based design courses. Hands-on projects are incorporated into engineering core courses that are taught in small sections.
Engineering Plus echoes the call for change in our academic community to better support equity, diversity and inclusion for our students.
