Purpose of the Major
The bachelor of arts in engineering arts is offered for those students who recognize the increasing importance of science and technology in today's world, who want to better understand the engineer's role in service to humanity, and who do not intend to pursue professional practice as engineers. The bachelor of science in engineering science is the only ABET-accredited degree.
The possibilities of coupling the bachelor of arts in engineering arts with other disciplines are boundless. The bachelor of arts coupled with a focused set of studies in the liberal arts is a particularly well-suited course of study for preparing students to address the complexities of the world in which we live.
