The Engineering Science Major

 


The engineering science curriculum is rooted in mechanical engineering and engineering design. The major requires an industrial co-op. The program bridges the liberal arts and engineering by emphasizing not only the key technical aspects of engineering, but also the vital benefits engineering has for society.

ABET logoThe Sweet Briar B.S. in Engineering Science is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012.
