Welcome to the UMES Engineering Programs
The department offers an ABET accredited four year bachelors’ degree General Engineering program with four specializations: aerospace, computer, electrical, and mechanical. The engineering program is founded on the basic sciences and emphasizes the development of a high degree of technical competence. It integrates these elements: (1) basic sciences, including mathematics, physics, and chemistry; (2) engineering sciences including mechanics of solids and fluids, engineering materials, thermodynamics, electrical and electronic circuits, and transport phenomena; (3) engineering design, which applies the above elements into the creation of systems, components and processes while optimizing resources; and (4) humanities and social sciences as part of the general education requirements.
It is anticipated that starting from Fall 2023, a new BS degree program in Biomedical Engineering, a new MS in Electrical and Mechatronics Engineering Program will be launched. Separately, a joint Ph.D. program in Applied Computing and Engineering program between Engineering and Aviation Science Department and Computer Science and Engineering Technology Department will also be launched.
