    This program is designed to give you an introductory-level education of multi-disciplinary engineering skills through physics, calculus, and engineering analysis courses. In addition, during your first two years you'll be introduced to a variety of energy-related industries.

    With this combination, you will be encouraged to begin specialization through approved upper-level electives. Specifically, you can focus on energy use in buildings, alternative energy production, petroleum technology, nuclear energy, or energy and the environment. This organization will help you translate to applied skills, making you more marketable in the job market. Finally, in your upper-level course requirement and capstone project, you'll work on sensors and controls.
