The Engineering program at CSUF provides the best qualities of teaching, scholarship and professional practice; and are committed to facilitate the education of engineering undergraduate and graduate students for their entrance into, and significant contribution to, the engineering profession. Our students are actively engaged and work in collaboration with faculty and staff to acquire and expand knowledge.

Drawing upon its professional expertise in many areas of engineering, the Engineering program serves as a distinctive resource and catalyst for partnerships with public and private organizations in the region. The program offers a broad education in basic sciences, mathematics, and fundamental principles and practices of engineering. These are coupled with studies in social sciences, arts, humanities and behavioral sciences due to their importance for an engineer’s professional career.

Degree Description

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (General) is designed to provide students with skills and knowledge in a wide range of engineering disciplines in order that they contribute and grow in their intended engineering profession. The program is structured so that students are engaged in opportunities to work with faculty and students in multiple engineering disciplines, and train to synthesize and analyze complex interdisciplinary systems that are vital in modern society. It provides students with a modern education that can easily be applied in the industry after graduation.

Learning Goals and Student Learning Outcomes

High School Preparation

The entering freshman’s preparation should include two years of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and one year of physics or chemistry. Students deficient in mathematics or chemistry must take special preparatory courses, which will not carry credit for the major. (See Mathematics Section  for Entry Level Mathematics test and Math-Science Qualifying Examination requirements)

Transfer Students

A transfer student shall complete a minimum of 30 units in residence. Work taken at another college or university on which a “D” (1.0) was earned may not be substituted for upper-division courses.
