At the University of Mississippi, you’ll discover the engineering path that’s right for you
You’ll find the professors that will support and challenge you. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in innovative research – at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. And, through our local chapters of engineering professional societies, you’ll learn and network with people in your focus area.
Find out more about our academic programs:
- Biomedical engineering – combining the design and problem-solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance healthcare treatment.
- Chemical engineering – applying chemistry, physics, biology and math to find new or improved uses for fuels, food, drugs and more.
- Civil engineering – using science and creativity to design for sustainability, undertake safe construction and maintain aging infrastructure systems.
- Computer engineering – building computing devices – everything from personal computers and supercomputers to systems in cell phones, household appliances and transportation.
- Computer science – developing software, applications or websites. Or designing and protecting computer systems. Or focusing on data – how to store, organize and derive value.
- Electrical engineering – using the physics and mathematics of electricity, electromagnetism and electronics to create, develop and test electrical equipment and systems.
- General engineering – provides you with an understanding of the core math, scientific and technical principles needed for engineering.
- Geology – studying the earth – its history, its composition and processes, as well as potential hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides and climate change.
- Geological engineering – considering the engineering properties of natural soils and rock for building and protecting foundations, dams, levees and tunnels.
- Mechanical engineering – designing cars and aircraft, building robots used in manufacturing, making structures stronger, researching new ways of producing energy, and more.
You can pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees in each of these areas.
Six of the undergraduate engineering degrees at the University of Mississippi are currently accredited by ABET, with our three newer degree programs in progress (B.S. Biomedical Engineering, B.S. Computer Engineering, B.S. Engineering).
