The Department of Engineering Fundamentals doesn’t offer degree programs; rather, the department provides the foundation for the degree programs offered by all of the other departments in the College of Engineering.

Freshman students in aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, computer and software engineering, and so on begin with the Department of Engineering Fundamentals and then transition into their degree-oriented work during their second year on campus.
