Undergraduate Degree Programs
The College of Engineering offers the following ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree programs:
- BS in Bioengineering
- BS in Chemical Engineering
- BS in Civil Engineering
- BS in Environmental Engineering
- BS in Computer Science and Engineering
- BS in Electrical Engineering
- BS in Mechanical Engineering
The College of Engineering also offers the following ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree programs:
- BS in Computer Science and Engineering Technology
- BS in Construction Engineering Technology
- BS in Electrical Engineering Technology
- BS in Information Technology
- BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology
The College of Engineering also offers a Minor in Computer Science and Engineering.
Students may wish to consider a dual degree plan within the College of Engineering. Depending on which two curricula are involved, careful planning from the beginning may permit the completion of both degrees with less than a full year of additional study. In any dual degree plan, the student must be accepted by both major departments and have an advisor from each of the two degree programs. With any combination, the curricular requirements of each individual degree must be met.
The College of Engineering also offers a full range of graduate programs. Refer to the Graduate School section for information on programs and policies specifically related to graduate students.
Cooperative (Co-op) Education Program
Students in the Engineering Science degree programs must complete a cooperative (co-op) educational requirement. The purpose of the co-op program is to provide students with career-related experiences. The program also helps students defray the cost of their education and enhances employment opportunities after graduation. The curriculum in each of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree programs is set up to accommodate four, and in some cases five, co-op assignments. To satisfy the requirement, a student must successfully complete a minimum of three registered, semester-long work experiences, alternating with semesters of coursework. The student pays a $475 fee when registered for each of the required co-op experiences. Successful completion of each registered work experience appears on the student’s transcript. A student with a registered work experience is considered a full time student for that term.
The College will assist students in finding co-op positions, but does not guarantee placement. Elaborations on implementation policies are available in the College’s Career Development Center. For students in the Engineering Technology degree programs, participation in the co-op program is optional. Students who wish to participate in this program should contact the Career Development Center in the College of Engineering at 419.530.8050.
Policy: Previous Work Experience for Co-op Credit
- Previous work experience can be counted for only one co-op credit.
- The work must have occurred within 2 years from the date of the request for approval.
- Direct from high school students are not eligible for prior work experience credit for co-op.
- Students and employers are required to complete evaluations based on the work experience.
- Job duties/descriptions will be reviewed by engineering faculty within the respective departments.
Verification of Work:
Students must submit the following information to their co-op director:
- Company website with text in English outlining products, services, customers, etc.
- Letter from the employer on company letterhead including:
- Job Title
- Job Duties/Responsibilities
- Dates of Employment
- Total number of Hours completed within designated time frame
- Email Address of the Student’s Direct Manager (must be an Engineer and business email address i.e. no gmail, etc.)
- Email Address of the Student’s Human Resource contact (business email address i.e. no gmail, etc.)
Falsifying work experience for co-op credit is Academic Dishonesty and will be treated as such in the College.
