A Bachelor of Science in engineering science immerses students in a curriculum that emphasizes a deep understanding of the fundamentals of the physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering science. Students may choose to specialize in chemical, electrical, or mechanical engineering through elective courses their junior and senior years.
A B.S. in engineering science features design at its core. Students take at least one design course per semester, with emphasis on creativity, critical thinking, and the development of decision-making skills. They also complete a major design project each year that ties classroom learning to practical experience.
Trinity does not offer a minor in engineering. However, engineering students are required to take six math courses during their course of study, which qualifies them for a minor in mathematics.
Additionally, students have the option to combine an engineering major with several other minors, such as environmental studies and urban studies. Students also may earn a double major in engineering science and physics by taking 12 hours in physics in addition to the engineering science requirements.
