Engineering - BS (41 hours total)

 

Overview

The Engineering major is designed to educate students within a liberal arts environment so that they will develop the skills necessary to make significant contributions in the field of engineering, while also having a positive impact on society.  Rather than specializing in a particular field in engineering, Ottawa's general program offers students a broader perspective and provides them with a solid foundation of the engineering principles needed to analyze and solve the technical challenges of the future.
