- Bachelor of Science https://www.stmarytx.edu/academics/programs/engineering-science/ https://www.stmarytx.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/engineering-science-student.jpg
All degree plans are Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Engineering Science with different concentrations. Currently, there are five established concentrations with complete degree plan mapped that students can choose from as well as open Concentration with 24 credit hours as “open electives” to be custom-tailored based on student’s choice and availability of the concentration at St. Mary’s University.
All engineering science programs cover university core, math and science for engineering degrees, and core engineering courses to give students a solid platform to build upon based on chosen concentration. There are 24 credit-hours that are dedicated to selected areas. There are also a couple of technical electives that are usually selected based on concentration to further enhance program of choice.
For more information, see degree plans for each concentration and consult the Undergraduate catalog for a complete list of courses and their descriptions:
At least a semester of internship is mandatory for students to complete before their senior year. There is a strong network of our alumni, as well as industry, around us that allow us to find appropriate internships for our students. Semester internships are normally done in the Greater San Antonio area. However, summer internships are open to any location in United States and beyond. Students are encouraged to look for a senior design project topic while doing their internships so they can collaborate with industry on their senior design project.
Our engineering majors intern at a variety of local and national organizations such as:
- Southwest Research Institute
- Air Force Bases
- City Public Service
- Harris Electronics
Engineering Science at St. Mary’s prepares students to pursue careers in multidisciplinary fields such as biomedical engineering, environmental engineering, pre-medicine and other areas of science.
