The mission of the BSE Engineering program is to develop in students the necessary knowledge and analytical skills for professional engineering practice or for successful graduate studies. Because of its general nature, it is characterized by breadth and permits study in depth, of a specialized field such as architectural engineering, composites engineering, industrial and systems engineering or textile engineering. Students choose their engineering concentration in their sophomore year. This engineering major provides for flexibility to have a general engineering education with a career path in the respective specialized fields.
The BSE Engineering Program at Philadelphia University incorporates the contemporary thinking related to engineering education that has been studied in the National Academy of Engineering publication “The Engineer of 2020 – Visions of Engineering in the New Century.”
