Open Option Engineering

The Open Option Engineering program in the School of Engineering is designed for incoming students who are interested in majoring in an engineering major but are uncertain of which engineering discipline they wish to pursue. Students in the Open Option Engineering program follow the first semester common engineering curriculum. The first semester Introduction to Engineering seminar will inform students’ decision making as they identify an engineering discipline are of interest.
