Learn how to apply science and math to design, construct, operate and maintain solutions to technical problems
A general engineering background provides you with an understanding of the core math, scientific and technical principles needed for engineering. You’ll learn about problem-solving, as well as gain teamwork, leadership and communications skills.
You’ll explore the various engineering directions offered at Ole Miss in your first year in the general engineering program.
With a bachelor degree in engineering, you’ll be equipped for many engineering – and non-engineering – career paths. This could be as a project engineer, medical doctor, lawyer, military, business person and many other opportunities.
What you’ll find at Ole Miss
In general engineering, you will get:
- Degree choice – with the more specialized Bachelor of Science degree, you’ll take additional engineering science and engineering elective courses. With a Bachelor of Engineering, you get the core engineering science principles plus the flexibility to broaden your course selection outside of engineering.
- Tailored program – you can choose an emphasis in business, manufacturing, pre-law, pre-med, ROTC studies and secondary education – or one designed around your career interests.
- Opportunity to change to another engineering department – you can switch to a more specialized degree if you meet the academic requirements.
