Today's industry requires engineers who can act upon ideas, articulate concepts, work within teams, and develop solutions that will meet economic and societal issues. An ideal engineering program melds a variety of disciplines with a strong foundation of engineering fundamentals. Baylor engineering has softened the traditional sharp distinction between academic disciplines to produce engineering graduates who excel as members of interdisciplinary teams. Most high-tech designs in industry are routinely provided by such interdisciplinary teams.
Small classes and a close working relationship with demanding faculty are major strengths of the programs. Baylor's Engineering program currently comprises 17 Ph.D. faculty and two full-time lecturers, most with extensive industrial and/or teaching experience. Many are registered professional engineers. Graduates of the Baylor engineering program are well prepared to begin work in industry, to pursue an advanced engineering degree, or to pursue other career fields such as business, medicine, or law.
Joint Bachelors and Masters are available which provide up to six hours of dual credit. A joint Master of Engineering/MBA program is also available and permits substantial credit reduction compared to the requirements of the separate degrees.
