Bachelor of Science in General Engineering – Overview
The General Engineering program offers students an interdisciplinary engineering education not generally available through conventional single discipline programs. This fast- paced, outcome-focused and competency-based curriculum provides a comprehensive program in basic engineering sciences, engineering management and entrepreneurship. It gives an opportunity to students to choose a technical cluster of their choice while receiving a strong foundation in entrepreneurial management. The combination of a sound theoretical background, the ability to apply such knowledge and management skills gives the graduate in general engineering a sound but flexible base for a career.
In addition to gaining a solid background in management, graduates are equipped with detailed technical knowledge in their field. They have the tools to innovate, lead, and strategically manage in an industry that increasingly rewards interdisciplinary expertise. The student can move into practice or advanced study in the engineering branch of their choice. With equal ease, the student can prepare for further study in management.Recommended Course Schedule
Provide quality education in engineering and management fields to enable students to become competent professionals in the fields of engineering and/or education, technology evangelists, technical entrepreneurs, marketing and pre-sales executives, project managers, production managers and technical support executives.
Instill the desire to continuously improve and expand their technical and professional skills through formal means as well as through informal self-study.
Equip students in using engineering knowledge as a base to solve problems requiring business and analytical skills.
On completion of the program students will be able to demonstrate the ability to:
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
- Function on multidisciplinary teams and communicate with technologists and business leaders with equal ease
- Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems and understand the impact of such solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context.
- Understand the entrepreneurial process and how to design, develop, and bring new products and processes to market.
The program consists of both 3 credit and 4 credit courses. The following is the course break up.
All courses follow a 15-week delivery model where course objectives and outcomes for each week are thoroughly outlined and presented to students. Each course will consist of the following elements
- Multi-Media Presentations
- Interactive Sessions with Faculty online
- Assignments including tasks, projects and activities that are graded manually by the professors
- Continuous Assessments (quizzes, comprehension tests, instructor oversight)
- Final Exam
There will be a significant emphasis on the outcomes for each week. Assignments are focused on assessing the students’ capability of applying the knowledge gained and demonstrating their skills and abilities in specific areas.
