Our applied geophysics major is the application of the study of Earth through the use of physics to the betterment
of mankind and the environment. Understand past climates and continental positions,
identify oil and gas reserves or water supplies, and evaluate and mitigate natural
Is engineering a major? Yes! Pursue your own unique path. Customize our bachelor of science in engineering major to fit your career goals or select the systems engineering path.
With our biomedical engineering major, apply engineering approaches to understand living systems. Design new medical devices
for diagnosis and therapy. Establish methods to replace damaged or diseased organs,
image the internal structures of the body, and discover many ways to make our lives
healthier and safer.
Our chemical engineering major combines chemistry and engineering to produce chemicals and discover new ways to
use them. Take on environmental challenges, such as desalination of seawater and refining
petroleum more efficiently. Develop ways to mass-produce lifesaving drugs and vaccines.
Plan, build, and manage the facilities essential to our civilization—bridges, dams,
highways, transit systems, airports, tunnels, irrigation systems, and commercial buildings
with our civil engineering major. Meet the challenges of deteriorating infrastructure, traffic congestion, energy
needs, and natural disasters.
As a computer engineering major, learn how computing hardware and software interact and how to combine these technologies
into complete, innovative systems. Develop design skills in computer networks, computer
architecture, embedded systems, robotics, and autonomous vehicles, and how to make
these systems secure.
Our construction management major prepares you to take charge of building projects, from industrial buildings and roads
to homes and hospitals. Learn the basics of surveying, utility systems, construction,
Harness the combined power of applied physics and applied mathematics to design products
and systems ranging from sustainable power grids, to medical devices, to communications,
signal processing, photonics, and robotics with our electrical engineering major. Learn the skills to build the Internet of Things, the central nervous system for
the modern connected world.
Our environmental engineering major focuses on creating systems that provide safe drinking water, maintaining or improving
air quality, controlling pollution in rivers and lakes, cleaning up contaminated land
and water resources, and helping industry minimize pollution in many ways.
