Selected Courses and Programs
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The University of New Haven offers a wide variety of in-depth courses that create a transformational educational experience for our students. To view the complete list of courses you'll take while pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, check out the Academic Catalog:

Licensure and Certification Information

One of the requirements to become a licensed Professional Engineer includes having an earned undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited program. The University offers ABET-accredited bachelor’s degrees in Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial & Systems and Mechanical Engineering. The B.S. Engineering program is not ABET-accredited. While students can submit their education credentials to NCEES for review, there is no guarantee that the B.S. in Engineering degree will qualify you to be able to take the FE exam, the first step towards engineering licensure. Information on this review process is available here:

For the University’s B.S. Engineering program:

  • Our curriculum does not meet the educational requirements for becoming a Professional Engineer (PE licensure) in AL, AK, AS, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA, GU, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MP, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NY, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, PR, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, VI, WA, WV, WI, and WY.

NOTE: While you are able to submit your education credentials to NCEES for review, there is no guarantee that the B.S. Engineering degree will qualify you to be able to take the FE exam, the first step toward engineering licensure. Students interested in becoming a licensed Professional Engineer should consult with an academic advisor regarding the selection of one of our ABET-accredited engineering disciplines.
