Degrees and Areas of Study

Bachelor of Science degrees are offered in biomedical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering physics, industrial and systems engineering, materials science and engineering, and mechanical engineering. A bachelor of arts degree is offered in computer science. Minors are offered in computer science for engineers and scientists, computing and information technology, and materials science and engineering.

Graduation Requirements

To be eligible for the Bachelor of Arts degre or the Bachelor of Science degree, students must

  1. complete all of the requirements in one of the college's degree programs,
  2. fulfill the university's General Education requirements. Intra-university transfer students who have completed an Area VI college component course do not have to complete EGR 190, the College of Engineering and Computer Science college component course,
  3. complete the residency requirement of 45 credit hours at Wright State University, 30 of which must be earned in courses numbered 300 or above. At least 15 of the last 45 hours of the degree must be taken in residence,
  4. complete all academic work with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA in all engineering and computer science courses taken at Wright State University.
Students should meet with their academic advisor on a regular basis and especially before their last quarter to be sure they will complete all requirements for graduation.

Honors Program

Honors programs are available in all departments. These honors programs give well-qualified students the opportunity to engage in advanced course work and carry out independent research projects. Students who are interested in an honors program should consult with the chair of the appropriate department. Honors are awarded at graduation.

Cooperative Education

Cooperative education programs are available in all departments. These programs permit students to gain work experience that is relevant to their academic programs. Interested students should contact the Office of Career Services.

EGR 190-4.0 is the Area VI college component course. All eligible students are required to register for and pass this course. "Eligible" is defined as having earned a total of not more than 45 quarter credit hours in residence at WSU or by transfer credit from another university.

Students who are not eligible to enroll in EGR 190 may substitute one of the following courses for the CECS college component course subject to department advisor approval:

ISE 210-4.0 Engineering Perspectives
EES 260-4.0 Environmental Science and Society: A Cross-Cultural Perspective
EC 290-4.0 Economic, Business, and Social Issues
PSY 110-4.0 Psychology: The Science of Behavior II
URS 200-4.0 Growth and Change in Urban Societies
Area VI Transfer Policy: Students who wish to transfer from another college at WSU to the CECS will take and pass EGR 190, if eligible to enroll in the course, unless they have already completed a college component course.
