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. A student's chosen emphasis gives him or her the opportunity to explore a passion for engineering, while pairing it with an e+ Concentration within, or external to, 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
