Starting Fall 2019
The College of Engineering now offers a new Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science (BSES) with initial concentrations in either Aerospace Engineering or Biomedical Engineering. This new degree, currently housed within the college’s Mechanical Engineering department, is intended to increase the options for our students, providing an interdisciplinary education and a mechanism to cover emerging areas.
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.
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.
