Undergraduate Major Programs
Learn to design and maintain spacecraft, commercial aircraft, fighter jets, and more while developing working knowledge of aerodynamics, control system design, gas dynamics, solid and fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics. Explore opportunities to complete industry-sponsored capstone projects, some of which become commercial products.
This interdisciplinary program serves as a launchpad for careers solving real-world problems in the private sector or for advanced study in applications such as engineering and medicine. This major combines a broad interest in physics with practical career skills, networking opportunities, and an Engineering Senior Design Project.
Develop your foundation in structural health monitoring and analysis, materials processing, water and energy efficiency, and gain real-world experience through specialized projects, architectural studio courses, and paid internships while preparing for a career focused on the structural integrity and resilience of buildings and the comfort and health of their occupants.
Biosystems Analytics & Technology
Your interest in science, technology, big data, and analytics can contribute to solving the natural resources, food, energy, and health challenges of the future. Coursework combines biological, physical, and data sciences with technology to environmental, ecological, biological, and human challenges in careers at the intersection of science, technology, and analytics.
Develop the skills and knowledge to help guide the world toward a sustainable future by studying ways to sustainably feed an ever-growing world population, harness and preserve natural resources, and overcome environmental challenges. Immersion in design throughout the major prepares you to help protect the health and well-being of humans, wildlife and the Earth.
Uncover the groundbreaking solutions and cutting-edge innovations that will help shape the future of science, technology, medicine and engineering while developing a strong theoretical background in physics, materials science, medicine and biology and learning how to apply that knowledge to a range of biological and physical systems.
Prepare to create infrastructure that stands the test of time using methods and materials that preserve the world's vital resources and protect the environment while studying a broad range of subjects. Opportunities for paid internships, fieldwork, capstone projects and design-build competitions position graduates to fill much-needed roles in public and private sectors.
Prepare for a career as an environmental engineer who can develop methods for clean manufacturing, wastewater treatment, water purification, alternative energy, and sustainable building. Learn about toxicity and pollutants and how to address issues across a range of industries that potentially affect the environment and public health in classroom study, research, and real-world design projects.
This major sheds light on the human dimensions of environmental issues. Explore techniques for addressing pressing social science issues and study physical science techniques as you learn about water, land use, food, energy, the built environment and climate from a critical perspective of policy and social science.
Develop understanding of the structure of the Earth, evolution of life on Earth, plate tectonics, formation and importance of Earth materials and natural resources, processes that shape and change our planet, and linkages between humans and our physical environment. Graduates pursue careers in research, energy, mineral resources, academia, and more.
