Select Your Emphasis
Would you like to pursue your
own unique path in engineering
— or enter an emerging field?
If so, consider earning a Bachelor
of Science in Engineering (BSE)
The BSE degree program consists
of courses fundamental to all
engineering disciplines and a
large number of elective courses
built in to provide flexibility.
You can customize your degree
to fit your career goals, or select
from three defined paths.
BSE Program Educational Objectives
Bachelor of Science in Engineering graduates are prepared to accomplish the following objectives:
- Join, or break ground in establishing a workforce in an emerging or blended discipline of engineering; and
- Secure employment in a profession or field for which an undergraduate engineering education is an asset; or
- Gain admission to and successfully complete a graduate program in an engineering discipline or in another field for which an engineering undergraduate degree is recognized as appropriate preparation for graduate work.
Shape Your Degree
Create your own course of study,
or choose one of these three
exciting fields for your technical
Service Systems Engineering
As a service systems engineer,
you will develop ways to make
service sector industries function
smoothly and efficiently.
You will figure out how systems
work, focusing on design,
operation, and problem solving.
Emphasis is on process over
product, and the human side
As an industrial engineer,
you will focus on the
optimization of manufacturing
processes. You will design,
improve, and install production
systems of people, materials,
information, equipment, and
energy, working in a wide
variety of businesses to increase
sustainability. You will reduce
costs associated with new
technologies and strive to make
work faster, easier, and more
As a geospatial engineer,
you will combine the use of
spatial information software
and analytical methods with
terrestrial or geographic data
to create 3D maps, employing
Earth observation systems,
global navigation satellite
systems, laser and radar
imaging sensors, wireless
technologies, and more.
Lots of Options
As a BSE student, you have
options and choices for up to
40 percent of your degree path.
This will provide you with a
great deal of flexibility to pursue
studies that reflect your own
interests. You can pick any area
of study to blend with the
engineering focus that you
select for a technical emphasis.
Use your choices, made with
the guidance of knowledgeable
faculty and advisors, to complete
a personalized engineering degree
that can include a built-in minor
or certificate as part of the degree
path. Michigan Tech offers more
than fifty different minors and
eighteen different certificate
BSE degree plan consists of five components:
Mathematics and Science,
- and Directed Electives.
