Basic Engineering

What is Basic Engineering?

The primary mission of the Basic Engineering Program is to provide an initial major for entering students who have not decided on a specific engineering discipline. This is a common situation for many entering students, who often have not had sufficient exposure to the various engineering disciplines to make a selection. Students who are eligible for admission to the College of Engineering may choose to major in Basic Engineering during their first year. The Clay N. Hixson Student Success Center will advise these students and assist them in the selection of a degree-granting major.
