Program Overview

The Engineering Sciences program at UC Santa Barbara serves as a focal point for the cross-disciplinary educational environment that prevails in each of our five degree-granting undergraduate programs (chemical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering). The courses offered in this "department" are designed to cultivate well-educated, innovative engineers and scientists with excellent management and entrepreneurial skills and attitudes oriented to new technologies. 

Course Descriptions

One of the missions of the Engineering Sciences program is to provide coursework commonly needed across other educational programs in the College of Engineering. For example, courses in computer programming, computation, ethics, engineering writing, and even an aeronautics-inspired art course are offered. A complete list of courses offered through Engineering Sciences can be found here: Engineering Sciences Course Catalog
