Undergraduate Academic Programs

The University of Mississippi School of Engineering offers seven undergraduate degree programs. These programs are associated with the six departments located on the main campus in Oxford, MS. If you are currently in or finished with an undergraduate degree, you may be interested in one of many engineering graduate programs.

Chemical Engineering

WHAT CHEMICAL ENGINEERS DO

Chemical engineers build a bridge between science and manufacturing.

Chemical engineers:

  • Clean up the environment
  • Produce new, life-saving drugs
  • Design new medical devices
  • Produce integrated circuits, plastics, and fabrics
  • Manufacture altnernative fuels

Chemical engineers must be renaissance men and women, able to apply principles of chemistry, physics, math, engineering, and environmental sciences to solve problems efficiently and economically.

Civil Engineering

WHAT CIVIL ENGINEERS DO

Civil engineers serve as the engine behind the growth of modern cities. They use scientific knowledge and hands-on creativity to solve 21st-century problems: They design and build safe and efficient highway systems and airports; they plan ways to keep our water supplies clean and healthy; and they create soaring skyscrapers that can withstand earthquakes.

Civil engineers shape our world, our nation, and our communities.

Computer and Information Science

WHAT COMPUTER SCIENTISTS DO

Graduates with degrees in computer and information science are prepared for a wide variety of computer-related careers, such as systems analyst, software and systems engineer, and programmer and database administrator. Computer scientists work as designers, researchers, and managers, using their technical expertise and creative insights to develop the technologies that shape the future, to help scientists unlock the secrets of the universe or simply to build innovative Web sites.

Electrical Engineering

WHAT ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS DO

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and help manufacture the accoutrements of modern life. An electrical engineer might work for an electrical utility company, finding better ways to generate and distribute power, perfect robot-control systems for industry, design aviation electronics or radar systems for the U.S. military, or develop new wireless communication systems for a company.

Approved Emphasis Areas- Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, General Program

General Engineering (Bachelor of Engineering)

WHAT GENERAL ENGINEERS DO

All engineers, no matter the discipline, apply theories and principles of science and mathematics to research and develop economical solutions to technical problems. Engineers provide the link between science and society.

As an undergraduate degree, general engineering trains students in an organized and logical way to approach problems. Because those skills are valued in many careers, the general engineering degree provides graduates with a wide variety of options in the working world. Though not a direct academic path to a career as a practicing professional engineer, the general engineering degree provides an excellent technical foundation for a career outside of traditional engineering.

Ole Miss general engineering emphases include pre-med, pre-law, manufacturing, public policy leadership, education, business, the military, and other approved areas. Students may also choose an emphasis area not listed only with expressed approval.

Geological Engineering

WHAT GEOLOGICAL ENGINEERS DO

Geological engineers design safe, economic and efficient solutions to problems humanity faces within natural geological systems. Both disciplines help identify and clean up environmentally contaminated sites.

Both disciplines require training in the basic sciences and mathematics and apply them to natural geological systems. Students in our undergraduate programs enjoy working with applied sciences in a natural setting.

Geology

WHAT GEOLOGISTS DO

Geologists study Earth's origins and its composition, processes and history. Geologists investigate natural hazards, climate change, natural resources and hydrology. Both disciplines help identify and clean up environmentally contaminated sites.

Both disciplines require training in the basic sciences and mathematics and apply them to natural geological systems. Students in our undergraduate programs enjoy working with applied sciences in a natural setting.

Mechanical Engineering

WHAT MECHANICAL ENGINEERS DO

Mechanical engineers work in nearly every industry. They research, develop, design, manufacture and test leading technologies, engines, mechanisms, and machines. Mechanical engineers design cars and aircraft, bulid robots used in manufacturing, research new ways of producing energy, design biologically inspired engineering systems and manipulate nanomaterials to make structures stronger. Mechanical engineers provide the foundation for the growth of the world, and their skills enable them to engage in multidisciplinary engineering fields.
