Current ME Program

A modernized curriculum

A systems approach to engineering education means classes aren’t taught as disconnected units, but support each other while building a strong understanding of engineering principles. With unprecedented advances in technology, engineers need to be agile in adapting to new tools and systems. Our modernized program is working to offer greater flexibility, experiential learning opportunities, and new focused emphasis areas to prepare our engineers to take their place in the field
