Starting Fall 2019
The College of Engineering will offer a new Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science (BSES) with initial concentrations in either Aerospace Engineering or Biomedical Engineering. This new degree is intended to increase the options for our students, providing an interdisciplinary education and a mechanism to cover emerging areas.
Applications are being accepted for Fall 2019, with graduation no earlier than Spring 2021. In addition to the normal scholarship opportunities that the College provides for all programs, a special scholarship opportunity will be available to students that will be able to graduate in Spring 2021 with a BSES degree. Up to four, full-tuition scholarships will be awarded for students able to graduate in Spring 2021. The scholarships will be renewable on a semester basis, for up to four semesters, based on adequate progress to graduate in Spring 2021. See below for scholarship application information.
Degrees will be a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science with a concentration in one of the two, initial areas. Given that it is brand new, the program in Engineering Science is not yet accredited by ABET–the organization that accredits engineering programs–however, the College’s next accreditation visit will be in Fall 2021, and we anticipate receiving accreditation, which will cover graduates from Spring 2021. Note that programs must have at least one graduate before they can apply for accreditation. Students can be assured that the Engineering Science program will have the same high standards and processes that have led to accreditation of our other programs.
For students wanting to be considered for the special scholarship, they should apply for the EE Black Scholarship (link). If you’ve already applied for the EE Black Scholarship this year, you do not have to apply again. Students should request a nomination letter from a faculty member affiliated with the program (see list of faculty). The faculty member should confirm the ability to graduate by Spring 2021.
Students interested in applying for or transferring to the BS in Engineering Science program should schedule an appointment to meet with an adviser in the College of Engineering Student Academic Services Office by calling (808) 956-8404 or stopping by Holmes Hall 250.
