Our new 4-year degree in Engineering Science prepares students broadly as a future practicing engineer. Our curriculum includes all ABET accrediting standards of coursework in Mathematics, Science, and Computer science.&n bsp; Our engineering coursework covers topics from the disciplines of Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, and Electrical Engineering with 9 hours of technical electives allowing a student to explore interests in other technical areas. These technical areas can include Computer Science, Computational Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, or Environmental Science. The goal is to produce well-rounded Engineering students that are prepared broadly for industry at large or graduate studies in specialized fields of engineering.

We also maintain a 3+2 Dual degree partnership with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and Tennessee Technology University. Students that are looking for a specialized degree in Engineering do not have to for go the Lee Experience. Our partnerships afford students three years at Lee University where we prepare them foundationally in Engineering with our coursework. After the completion of our coursework, students will transfer to one of our partnering institutions to complete the discipline specific engineering degree while still obtaining our Engineering Science degree along the way.
