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 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, control systems, analog and digital electronic systems, thermal-fluids and nuclear science and engineering. 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.
Pledge of Engineering Academic Standards: (1) As a condition of admission to the engineering program, students must complete ENGR 105, MATH 170, CHEM 111, ENGR 223 with a grade point average of at least 2.0. Upon admission, students are eligible to select their sequences. (2) Students who fail a specific engineering course twice will be dismissed from the college for a period of one year. (3) Students who have been dismissed from the college may not enroll in engineering courses. (4) A student who enrolls in an engineering class while petitioning for a waiver of applicable prerequisites must secure the waiver within the first month of classes or be dropped from the course in question.
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, Measurement & Control Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The study of Hazardous Waste Management may be selected as an option under each M.S. degree major. The Ph.D. major is in Nuclear Science & Engineering. For more information, see the Graduate Catalog. Additional graduate programs are available through interdisciplinary majors with mathematics and the physical sciences.
