The goal of the College of Engineering is to provide students with the education necessary to enter the engineering profession. The Bachelor of Science degree program in Engineering, which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET), is designed to be as flexible as possible to accommodate individual areas of interest within the requirements of the EAC/ABET. The new Bachelor of Science degree program in Engineering Management is designed to provide graduates with a background in both engineering and management disciplines. ISU engineering graduates are successfully employed in many areas of the engineering profession. Many have chosen to continue advanced studies in a wide variety of specialized engineering disciplines.
The emphasis in the program at Idaho State University is to develop design competence in some discipline of engineering. Each student entering the engineering program is assigned a faculty advisor to guarantee an appropriate plan of study and to insure continuity throughout the program. Each student completes 91 credit hours of general education and engineering core courses, which account for more than five semesters. They devote their last three semesters to more specialized, design-oriented courses. The College of Engineering offers sequences in the disciplines of structures, geotechnics, measurement and control systems, digital systems, thermal-fluids and nuclear power. The student will select two of the six sequences for a total of 26 credit hours and, with advisor approval, 11 credit hours of elective courses from science, mathematics and engineering. During the last two semesters each student completes senior design projects and is also expected to complete the national standardized Fundamentals of Engineering exam.
Students entering the program are expected to meet the following preparatory
requirements: (a) adequate algebra and trigonometry to enter the calculus
sequence; (b) one year of computer studies or demonstrated familiarity with computer language and computer fundamentals; and (c) one year of high school mechanical drawing, or equivalent. Preparatory mathematics, computer and mechanical drawing courses are available at ISU.
Under the Graduate School, the College of Engineering administers a program leading to the Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees. The M.S. program comprises majors in Nuclear Science & Engineering and Measurement & Control Engineering. The study of Hazardous Waste Management may be selected as an option under either M.S. degree majors. The Ph.D. major is in Nuclear Science & Engineering. For more information, see the Graduate School section of this bulletin. Additional graduate programs are available through interdisciplinary majors with mathematics and the physical sciences.
