A career in engineering starts with your degree. After obtaining a degree in engineering (either at the undergraduate or graduate level), you'll complete a state examination to become an Engineer in Training (EIT). Add several years of work as an EIT, you'll be ready to take your second state examination to become a licensed Professional Engineer (PE). Based on your specific interests - and whether you plan to pursue a graduate degree in engineering, or enter the workforce immediately after obtaining your bachelor's - ACU offers three degree options that can start the journey to your engineering career:

Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) - this degree provides in-depth, broad-based, hands-on instruction in engineering theory, design and application, with specialized courses to prepare students for careers or graduate work in chemical, electrical, mechanical or nuclear engineering

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Engineering Physics - this degree combines engineering study with additional courses in advanced math and physics that give students a strong foundation for the more intensive work of graduate-level engineering programs

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Engineering Science - a cooperative degree with the University of Texas at Arlington, this program enables students to complete both a B.S. in Engineering Science at ACU and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) or Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (B.S.I.E.) at UTA within five years


ACU Undergrads at National Labs
ACU's engineering and physics students help conduct nuclear physics research at national labs each summer. See their experiences at Fermilab and Brookhaven.
