Along with the other engineering majors, the School of Engineering offers an Applied Sciences major. Applied sciences in engineering is an individualized interdisciplinary program that is not subject to professional accreditation.
Applied sciences is designed to fill a broad set of educational needs that is not covered by one of the other majors. Possible concentrations include: packaging engineering, engineering physics, operations research, IT, and premed (note: a premed curriculum can be completed along with any other engineering major). Other fields may be covered to meet the special interests of engineering students.
The last two years of the program must be developed with the assistance of a dean and any relevant major departments. If you are interested in applied sciences, see Dean Prendergast for elective selection. Click here for a list of applied sciences degree requirements.
