General Engineering Program

General Engineering

General Engineering is a degree program designed for those interested in a career involving engineering knowledge but with more flexibility than a specific engineering discipline. Rather, this modern, project-based, engineering curriculum spans many areas of engineering to create adaptable engineers with practical skills. Students will acquire the ability to work as members of a team towards successful attainment of a common goal, as well as develop their oral and written communication skills. The program culminates in a year-long multidisciplinary senior design course sequence consisting of a project based largely on student interest and faculty input.


  • You have an interest in various different engineering disciplines and would like to diversify your skill set as much as possible

  • You are passionate about the engineering design and innovation

  • You want to concentrate your studies on a non-typical discipline in engineering (humanitarian engineering, entrepreneurship and engineering, etc.)

  • You wish to further your engineering knowledge as it relates to engineering’s impact on society and your specific learning pursuits.
