The B.S.E. degree is a general engineering degree program with three concentrations (Mechanical, Manufacturing, and Electrical Power). Courses in the degree program are offered in Cullowhee and Biltmore Park. Graduates of the B.S.E. program will:
- Apply their technical knowledge as practicing professionals or engage in graduate education.
- Work successfully in their chosen career individually and within a professional team environment.
- Engage in professional development in their profession by adapting to new technology and career challenges.
The B.S.E. program provides a foundation in mathematics, sciences and engineering, augmented with engineering concentrations. The Mechanical concentration focuses on mechanics, 3D visualization and simulation, analysis of static and dynamic systems, energy, and machine design. The Electrical Power concentration focuses on electric power systems, power electronics, smart grid design, renewable and sustainable energy, electric machines and drives, and emphasizes fundamental coursework in electrical and mechanical engineering. The Manufacturing concentration focuses on 3D visualization, manufacturing processes, computer aided design and manufacturing, automated manufacturing systems, and advanced manufacturing. Students work with outstanding faculty members who bring industry and business expertise to the classroom. The program emphasizes the hands-on application of theoretical and technical concepts through project-based learning (PBL), and students work on real-world assignments with companies across Western North Carolina, and beyond, through our Center for Rapid Product Realization.
