Engineering Instruction

Undergraduate instruction in aeronautics and astronautics, agricultural engineering, biological engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, environmental and ecological engineering, industrial engineering, materials engineering, mechanical engineering and nuclear engineering leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) in one of those designated areas. The individual schools of engineering that administer these areas of instruction are responsible for the final three years of the particular curriculum and determine whether students enrolled in each of the schools have acceptably fulfilled the degree requirements.

The degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E) or the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.S.) may be awarded to a student who acceptably carries out an interdisciplinary program that cuts across several of the traditional school lines. These programs are administered by the Interdisciplinary Engineering Program in the School of Engineering Education. The program administered by the Division of Construction Engineering and Management culminates in a degree of Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering.

All Purdue University Schools of Engineering undergraduate educational programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
