The engineering programs at UTC provide accessible education in the theory and application of engineering in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment that prepares students for successful careers in industry, government, and academia; emphasize project-based design; promote life-long learning; and serve the engineering profession.
The strengths of UTC's four-year Engineering programs are the emphases on breadth, interdisciplinary interaction, design, and depth. The programs build on the general education and graduation requirements of the University. Every student completes a structured set of courses that form a foundation in written and oral communication, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering fundamentals. Special emphasis is placed on learning the basic tools and techniques of engineering. Interdisciplinary interaction is introduced and emphasized through interdisciplinary design projects, team experience, and laboratory exercise. Depth is provided through theory and hands on experience (laboratories) in one of six disciplines (as chosen by the student):
- Chemical (BSChE)
- Civil (BSCE)
- Computer (BSE)
- Electrical (BSEE)
- Environmental (BSE)
- Industrial (BSE)
- Mechanical (BSME)
- Nuclear (BSE)
- UTeach (BSE)
Four of UTC’s disciplines are structured as discipline specific programs. These are the Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering programs. These programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET Inc.,1 the national accrediting agency for engineering, computing, and technology programs as specific Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical engineering programs, respectively.
The remaining five disciplines, Computer, Environmental, Industrial, Nuclear, and UTeach are structured as options within an interdisciplinary engineering program (ENGR) that focuses on providing depth in engineering applications that tend to cross disciplines. This program is accredited by the EAC of ABET Inc., as an Engineering program.
