Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Mission Statement

The mission of the FSU "Bachelor of Science in Engineering" program is to provide excellent undergraduate education in engineering, to establish close partnership with and facilitate technology transfers to industry and government, to contribute to economic development within the state of Maryland, specifically in the Western Maryland region, and to provide related service to the campus community and community at large. The B.S. in Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.


Program Educational Objectives

Within the first few years following graduation, alumni of the FSU BS in Engineering program will demonstrate

  1. accreditation-and-graduation
    1. Act as valuable employees or professionals in a broad range of career paths centered on Materials or Electrical Engineering skills.
    2. Apply their broader analytical skill set by finding innovative solutions to real-world problems and creating new knowledge, ideas, and products.
    3. Show professionalism and an ability to think globally through constructive teamwork, group problem solving, and effective communication with others not of an engineering background.
    4. Demonstrate ethical decision-making, which will lead to increased levels of responsibility and leadership positions.
    5. Engage in life-long learning by keeping their technical knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues up-to-date and taking advantage of professional development opportunities.

Program Outcomes

The students of Frostburg "Bachelor of Science in Engineering" program will demonstrate throughout the curriculum

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Collaborative Mechanical Engineering

Mission Statement

The mission of the FSU Collaborative Mechanical Engineering Program is to provide excellent undergraduate education in mechanical engineering, to establish close partnership with and facilitate technology transfers to industry and government, to contribute to economic development within the state of Maryland, specifically in the Western Maryland region, and to provide related service to the campus community and community at large. The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Bachelor of Science in Physics

Whether entering the job market or continuing on to a Graduate degree, an undergraduate degree in Physics has been shown to prepare you for anything in a science or mathematics based future. The core curriculum at FSU will prepare students to choose one of two concentrations:

  • Traditional Physics, with upper level courses in Quantum and Computational Physics
  • Engineering Physics, which allows you to extend your application knowledge with courses from the Mechanical or Electrical Engineering course list

An option to Double Major with Mathematics is available with the addition of only a few courses.
