B.S. in Engineering Science

Engineering Science

Engineering science at St. Mary's University provides greater flexibility than traditional programs, especially in choosing engineering electives, so that students gain a tailored education.

The program prepares students to pursue careers in multidisciplinary fields such as biomedical engineering, environmental engineering, materials sciences, pre-medicine, or other secondary areas. Engineering science is the only engineering program that allows the student to have a minor in a variety of areas. Every engineering senior also completes a year-long design project, some of which have even been patented.

Unique facilities available to engineering science students include an electrical engineering laboratory accessible 24-hours a day; an energy conversion laboratory for motors, generators and transformers; a manufacturing and robotics laboratory; and a research laboratory equipped with both UNIX and Windows workstations.

1

All St. Mary’s Core SMC 13XX "Reflection" courses must be completed before registering for SMC23XX "Practice" courses, unless authorized by student’s adviser.

2

EG 4363 fulfills SMC 4301 requirement.

3

Grade of “C” or better is required.  International students may be required to take EN 1313 to fulfill this requirement.

4

Engineering students must make a grade of “C” or better in all engineering courses and their prerequisites. One exception applies to the graduating senior who may petition his/her adviser to allow one grade of “D”. Students are not permitted to take an engineering, science, or mathematics course unless all prerequisites are passed with a grade of “C” or better.
