Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering program prepares students for careers in multidisciplinary engineering. The program includes a core set of engineering courses, which provides students with a foundation in Computer, Electrical, Industrial, and Mechanical Engineering principles. Students will then select one of the following application areas: 

  • Engineering Management 
  • Manufacturing Systems
  • Mechatronics Systems
  • Robotic Systems

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering program is new and not currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The program becomes eligible for ABET accreditation when the first students graduate from the program.

Program Educational Objectives

With their Kettering education as a foundation, within a few years of graduation, graduates will attain:

  • A reputation for working effectively and ethically in diverse professional environments.
  • Leadership in their profession while actively pursuing lifelong learning and contributing to progress within their field.
  • The ability to practice responsible decision making and apply best practices to their professional endeavors.

BS/MASTERS PATHWAY

Undergraduate students also have an opportunity to get their bachelor's and master's degrees in five years with the BS/MASTERS Pathway
