Engineering & Mathematics

Engineering students demonstrate a project

In addition to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a concentration in Industrial and Systems Engineering, the Department of Engineering, along with the Department of Mathematics, offers a dual degree in engineering and mathematics (Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a concentration in Industrial and Systems Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Mathematics).


Degrees Awarded

Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
