XO5J9444Most engineering programs do not have much room in their curricula for students to take elective courses in order for them to graduate with minors in disciplines outside their majors.

The Engineering Science degree at St. Mary’s is designed to address this issue. It offers students a curriculum that combines the foundational engineering principles, common to all engineering majors, with the flexibility to customize their program to obtain the depth of knowledge in the area of their choosing through 24 credit hours of technical electives.

The Engineering Science program at St. Mary’s University prepares students to acquire depth and breadth in engineering and science. Graduates are able to function across disciplines and they are well prepared for advanced studies as well as professional employment.
