Undergraduate Programs

Mason Engineering offers an impressive array of majors, minors, and undergraduate certificates. Take a look through them; you're likely to find some that match your areas of interest.

Bachelor of Science

  • Bioengineering, also referred to as biomedical engineering, is the application of engineering tools and approaches to solve problems in biology and medicine.
  • The BS in Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering combines challenging coursework in physics and mathematics with hands-on practical work in construction, building, and project management.
  • Computer engineers design new generations of computers, as well as embedded computing systems, such as those found in smartphones, cars, appliances, computer networks, smart factories, and the Internet of Things. Research in this area often involves complex trade-offs among various optimization criteria, such as speed, cost, power, energy, reliability, and security.
  • The Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security and Engineering (BS, CYSE) degree is concerned with the development of cyber resilient systems which include the protection of the physical as well as computer and network systems.
  • Our graduates are involved in the research, development, design, production, and operation of a broad array of devices and systems.
  • The Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at Mason grants students the knowledge and tools to oversee and operate large, complex systems.
  • The systems and industrial engineering program builds on this foundation, teaching theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and the ability to apply systems thinking to problems.

Undergraduate Minors

  • This minor provides students with a unique opportunity to earn a pilot’s license and gain expertise in various aspects of aviation management.
  • This minor prepares students for employment in environmental engineering and subsequent graduate studies in water and environmental engineering at Mason or elsewhere.
  • Mechanical Engineering is the broadest of the engineering disciplines, concerned with anything that moves or uses energy.
  • A dual program from the Carter School and College of Engineering and Computing about using engineering principles to support conditions for peace.
  • Sustainable systems engineering is a technical, transdisciplinary field focusing on how to design, integrate, and manage complex systems over their life cycles, with the goal of addressing climate change, energy, environmental, and economic sustainability.
  • This minor gives students the fundamentals of systems engineering. Participants learn how to deal with the system life cycle and use scientific methods for analyzing the operations of a system or organization. The courses help students in technical fields prepare for the information technology work now common in public and private industry.

Undergraduate Certificates

  • This certificate is available to students who are working on or possess an undergraduate degree in a science or engineering field but lack a formal credential in the computer science field.
