General Engineering

Bachelor of Science

A degree in general engineering gives you the background you need for a career that involves engineering — but is not necessarily limited to it. Combine a world-class education in engineering with an expertise in management, biology, math – or a variety of other disciplines – and create a career path you’re passionate about.

Discover the unlimited possibilities of engineering

Do you want to differentiate yourself from the competition by combining an education in engineering with a complementary field? Or, are you interested in the field of engineering but don’t know what discipline you want to specialize in? The University of New Haven’s bachelor’s degree in general engineering – part of the Tagliatela College of Engineering, which has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best in the country – is perfect for you.

Innovative Courses

  • Methods of Engineering Analysis

    Students will be introduced to typical problems encountered in various branches of engineering using a case-study approach. They will gain experience using computer tools to solve these problems numerically. Skill will be developed in a spreadsheet environment, and the fundamentals of programming will be presented. Applications involve use of descriptive statistics, regression, interpolation, logical and numerical functions, sets of algebraic equations. Students are introduced to data types, assignment and conditional statements, program flow control, passing parameters, returning values with functions, arrays.

  • Fluid Thermal Systems

    An expansive study of thermal and fluid principles and applications including laws of thermodynamics, basic power cycles, conservation laws, internal and external flows, and convective heat transfer.

  • Project Management and Engineering Economics

    An introduction to economic analysis with emphasis on those concepts directly related to project management. Topics include analysis of alternatives, project initiation, depreciation and taxation, cost estimates, risk and uncertainty, project planning, execution, and control.

  • Applied Engineering Statistics

    Topics include basic terminology, data presentation, descriptive statistics, curve-surface fitting and correlation, probability and model fitting, random variables, statistical inferences, one-way analysis of variance, prediction and tolerance intervals, and control charts.
