Engineering Mathematics

(Concurrent Degree)

The BSE in engineering mathematics program at UM-Dearborn provides students an opportunity to expand their knowledge in the field of applied mathematics, which is essential in modern engineering. By combining the tools and techniques learned in the engineering mathematics program with those learned in their engineering disciplines, students become more proficient in the application of mathematical reasoning to formulate and solve a wide range of contemporary engineering problems. The combined mathematics and engineering education gained though the program enables the graduates to successfully pursue professional careers in industry, research and development, and elsewhere.

The Engineering Mathematics degree is a concurrent Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree in Engineering Mathematics (EMATH) that can be pursued by undergraduate students majoring in Bioengineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Robotics Engineering. This makes it possible for a student majoring in one of the engineering disciplines to earn two degrees at the same time: a B.S.E. degree in their principal engineering major and a concurrent B.S.E. degree in Engineering Mathematics. Both degrees must be earned at the same time.

Educational Objectives

The coursework in the concurrent BSE program in Engineering Mathematics prepares graduates to:

  1. Be able to develop innovative mathematical solutions to complex engineering problems.
  2. Engage in continuous learning to advance their professional careers.

 Program Outcomes

  1. The ability to apply mathematical tools to model and solve engineering/applied mathematics problems
  2. The ability to use techniques and modern mathematical tools to solve engineering/applied mathematics problems.
  3. The ability to communicate mathematical ideas.

The Engineering Mathematics degree requires a minimum of 15 credit hours of course work in advanced mathematics beyond the 16 credits of mathematics already required in the degree program of the student’s principal engineering major.
