An e+ Emphasis is comprised of 22-28 credit hours, depending on the Emphasis chosen. The e+ Emphasis curriculum consists of 52 engineering credit hours, including a capstone design experience. An e+ Emphasis gives you the opportunity to explore your engineering passion and establish a disciplinary engineering foundation.

Students who started the degree prior to Fall 2018 should check the curriculum guide for their requirement term.

Current e+ Emphasis options:

Your chosen e+ Emphasis is then paired with an e+ Concentration, which is an additional field of study you are passionate about outside of engineering.

Why is it beneficial for students to have an interdisciplinary engineering degree? Because, engineers of our future:

  • are broadly educated
  • see themselves as global citizens
  • can be leaders in business and public service, as well as in research, development and design
  • are ethical and inclusive of all segments of society
  • have strong analytical skills, creativity, ingenuity, professionalism, and leadership
