General Engineering  is not a degree plan, but it is an opportunity to connect with resources in the Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering to explore these disciplines and careers.  You will be able to take courses that will align with any engineering or computing major. Your advisor, Jennifer Clark, will help identify an appropriate degree that meets career interest.

Exploring Engineering and Computer Science Careers

  1. Consider careers within engineering and computer science which interest you.
  2. Meet with a Career Coach in the Allen Yarnell Center for Student Success.
    • Identify strategies for exploring careers
    • Attend Internship and Job fairs to become familiar with the companies within field(s) of interest
  3.  Rank COE majors in order of interest
    • Review major/curriculum for top 3.
    • Meet with faculty program leaders and ask them about the major(s) and career field
    • Join a student club, or two. This will help you make connections and apply what you are learning in foundational courses.
    • Take an intro course.
  4. Meet with general engineering advisor, Jennifer Clark, to discuss findings, select courses and identify next steps.

The effort you put into researching and exploring the career field will make choosing the direction you wish to go easier. It will also make what you are learning in your courses relevant to the academic goals you have identified.
