Undergraduate Education

Faculty member Kris Depowski O'Donnell leads a class.

We support a number of undergraduate education initiatives in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. 

Our faculty members serve as the primary instructional faculty for sophomore and junior-level courses across the school. These courses address subject matter that is common to multiple engineering disciplines. Examples include statics, dynamics, strength of materials, and specialized programming courses.

Our faculty also support parts of the SEAS first year engineering program, which introduces students to engineering design and helps them explore career opportunities.

Certain engineering topics such as introductory electric circuits, introductory programming, statics, dynamics, etc., are required to be taken by students in multiple engineering majors. Department of Engineering Education professors are the primary instructors for these lower-division engineering courses. The department is also developing a two-course, interdisciplinary lab sequence and a two-course, interdisciplinary capstone design sequence that can be taken as electives by students in any engineering major. We are pursuing the establishment of a BS degree program in Engineering Science that will similarly cut across multiple engineering majors.
