The Department offers several different majors designed to meet a variety of students' needs. Students with a possible interest in physics should also see that information.
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The major provides preparation for engineering employment in industry or for graduate study in engineering.
Students can select appropriate upper level engineering courses to obtain an emphasis in specific areas.
Current emphasis options include:
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science major conforms to the minimum requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree at Hope College and is not accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The accredited major can be found at the top of this page.
Students wishing to combine elements of physics and engineering in their major should consider the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics. This major confirms to the minimum requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree at Hope College and is not accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The accredited major can be found on page 332. This major (minimum of 36 credits) combines elements from both areas and is designed in consultation with the chairperson and requires prior approval from the department.
In case of a dual major the physics and engineering courses required are those described above. The additional mathematics and science requirements shall be established by agreement between the student and the department. Recent dual majors have included engineering-dance, engineering-chemistry, engineering-computer science, engineering-english, and engineering-economics.
A minor in engineering consists of 20 credits of engineering courses. It must include ENGS 140, 150, 221, and at least one 300 level course. The remaining courses are to be chosen by the student in consultation with the department chairperson and the student's advisor. The exact courses will depend upon the intended major program of the student. Prior approval of the courses by the department is required.
