Welcome to the Undergraduate Studies Office of the College of
The College of Engineering has approximately 1,200 undergraduates
majoring in chemical engineering, computer engineering, computer
science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. With
about 130 full-time faculty members, the College has an unusually
good student to faculty ratio and a strong sense of community.
We encourage students to meet with the advisors in our office to
make sure that they take advantage of all the College has to offer.
Internships, individual study, and research opportunities await
enterprising students. The Bachelor of Science degree is designed to
be completed in four years. Our students leave us well prepared for
careers in graduate school, industry, or both.
