Curriculum for a Comprehensive Major in Engineering Science


Students in the program must select one of two areas of concentration: Environmental Engineering or Systems Engineering. Students must satisfy requirements for their selected concentration, for the Engineering Science core, and for the Shepherd University Core Curriculum.

Total hours required (including free electives), 120 Hours


Environmental Engineering Concentration, 50 Hours


The Environmental Engineering concentration is designed to prepare the student for a future in appkication of engineering technology to environmental issues and problems. The need for trained environmental engineers is illustrated through the numerous employment opportunities available for individuals trained in this field in industry, at state and federal agencies, and with environmental consulting firms.

Systems Engineering Concentration, 56 Hours


Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach in understanding technical aspects in engineering process and design. Systems Engineering is a key component in systems implementation and management that enables the realization of successful systems. Improving business strategies of integrated systems requires solid foundations in mathematical tools, computer modeling and networking, and operations research.

Economics Requirement, 3 Hours
