California National University:
Science in Engineering |
CALIFORNIA NATIONAL UNIVERSITY
The CNU College of
Engineering offers Bachelor and Master of Science in Engineering degrees with electives in computer, electrical,
environmental, and mechanical engineering, and a Bachelor of Computer Science. At the undergraduate level, basic
sciences and general engineering are highlighted to help the student evolve into a well-rounded engineer with
strengths in the area of his/her choice. At the graduate level, students and faculty work closely together to choose
a sub-discipline that complements the individualís work environment. For example, a computer engineering student
could specialize in microprocessors or switching theory; an electrical engineering student could specialize in
electronics power distribution, control systems, or communications; an environmental engineering student could take
classes in hazardous waste management, transport phenomena, or air pollution control, a mechanical engineering
student could specialize in thermodynamics or mechanical design; and a computer science student could specialize in
advanced computer architecture or programming languages.
Master of Science in Engineering degree applicants
are expected to have already obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering or in a related field usually with
a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Students with a non-engineering undergraduate degree may need additional calculus, physics
and 300-level and 400-level engineering courses to prepare them for engineering graduate courses. The Master of
Science in Engineering requires successful completion of 36 units of academic work and students are expected to
maintain a GPA of 3.0. This work includes a graduate core program designed to provide a background in advanced
engineering mathematics and an introduction to concepts related to engineering management; an elective program chosen
from the elective areas of computer engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science,
environmental engineering, and quality assurance science; and a masterís project involving research, development and
a final report.
