The undergraduate Engineering Science Program is multidepartmental and interdisciplinary. The majors consist of closely related fields in the natural sciences, mathematics, physics, and engineering. The majors offered within the Engineering Science Program prepare students especially for advanced graduate study in engineering or the natural sciences. The four engineering science majors are Energy Engineering, Engineering Mathematics and Statistics, Engineering Physics, and Environmental Engineering Science.
There are no graduate degrees offered through this program.
There is no graduate program in the Engineering Science Program.
