Engineering Technology - Mechanical (Renewable Energy Technologies) - Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Concentrations are "optional" educational sequences that students may chose to focus on particular areas related to their major. Concentrations may often be done without additional credits by judicious use of electives and other optional course requirements.
Students must complete all university degree requirements, which include: General Education requirements, Viewing a Wider World requirements, and elective credits to total at least 121 credits with 48 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Developmental coursework will not count towards the degree requirements and/or elective credits, but may be needed in order to take the necessary English and Mathematics coursework.
