Engineers are typically thought of as problem-solving, technically skilled people. However, they also need to be creative, imaginative and aware of social needs and problems. The well- rounded education provided by this program cultivates self- knowledge and leads to the specialized fields of professional engineering. This Engineering degree program follows the first two years at most institutions offering a baccalaureate degree in engineering so that students who complete the program can successfully transfer to colleges like Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the University of Massachusetts, Clarkson University and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
