The first-year Engineering Design Division program integrates engineering fundamentals and engineering communications in a year-long program that includes three hands-on engineering projects in the Engineering Design and Engineering Communications courses.
The program is unique in its design to integrate the many components that ensure the success and employability of our students and gives individual attention to students through small classes and labs.
Students learn about the different engineering disciplines in Watson College through presentations by faculty from those departments. There are opportunities to meet with individual faculty as a student makes the decision about their engineering major.
There are lectures that focus on engineering fundamentals theory in support of the engineering projects as well.
Students often meet with industrial leaders to talk about real-world applications and skills needed in today's workforce.
Scholarships and Funding
Students of exceptional achievement may be selected upon admission to Binghamton for one of three types of significant four-year scholarship commitments: President’s Scholarship, Provost’s Scholarship and Dean’s Scholarship. There is no application process; awards are competitive and vary in amount. Full-time enrollment and minimum grade-point-averages are required to maintain eligibility.
For engineering majors only.
Students must be admitted to the minor.
The program director must approve the declaration of this minor.
Students must earn a GPA of 2.0 or better in all required courses.
Courses (excluding prerequisites) used to fulfill requirements for the major cannot be used as courses satisfying requirements for a minor.
