Welcome to the Undergraduate Engineering Programs web site. We offer the following undergraduate engineering programs at Frostburg State University.
Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Strong core curriculum provides broad knowledge of math, science, and engineering while flexible interdisciplinary electives allow students to choose one of the following concentrations:
Depending on the selected concentration, students automatically obtain minor in physics, chemistry, or management. This program allows students to double major in physics by taking one or two additional courses.
Mechanical Engineering (ME)
Frostburg State University (FSU) and the University of Maryland, College Park (UM) are collaborating to offer an innovative program in mechanical engineering on the FSU campus. Collaborative engineering students complete their four-year study on the FSU campus and receive a BS degree in ME from University of Maryland. Physics, math, general education, and introductory engineering courses offered at FSU. Starting from junior year, students meeting transfer admission criteria are admitted to UM but continue their study on FSU campus. In junior and senior years, some of the lectures are offered from UM via Interactive Video Network. FSU faculty members teach all courses with a lab or project component. The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Dual Degree Engineering
Opportunities for Students Interested in Other Engineering Disciplines:
For students interested in engineering majors other than mechanical and BS Engineering, FSU and University of Maryland offer a dual degree engineering program. Under this program, students attend FSU for approximately three years and UM for approximately two. Students then receive two degrees (one in physics from FSU and a B.S. in engineering from University of Maryland). Engineering degrees are offered by University of Maryland in a variety of disciplines, including aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, materials engineering, and fire protection engineering.
