About the Engineering & Design Department

The Engineering and Design Department (ENGD), in the College of Science and Engineering, offers students four Bachelor of Science degrees: Industrial Design, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, and Polymer Materials Engineering. These programs place an emphasis on practical laboratory experiences, in addition to theoretical coursework. Each program’s curriculum is designed with input from strong industrial advisory committees to prepare students for professional positions in industry.
