In a society where lightning fast advances in science, technology, and engineering permeate our daily lives, it behooves professionals in areas as diverse as law, public policy, architecture, business, and finance to have a solid grounding in problem solving and engineering principals.
The Bachelor of Arts and minor in General Engineering degree at the Whiting School of Engineering provide students with the fundamental engineering principles needed, in a program that offers breadth, flexibility, interdisciplinary study, and even an international perspective. The program is best suited to students who desire a background in engineering and technology for careers outside of traditional engineering, such as patent law or medicine, for example.
This degree is not an engineering degree, and is not suitable for employment as a professional engineer. This program is not accredited by ABET. Students desiring careers as professional engineers should complete a BS degree in one of the engineering disciplines offered by the Whiting School.
