About the Degree

Your Career is the Priority

Today’s technological and societal challenges are becoming more complex and multidisciplinary. To address this need, we looked at engineering programs across the country. We asked employers what they look for in future employees. We challenged our engineering faculty to create a curriculum that exceeded their own expectations. Because your future is our biggest priority.

The OSU-Cascades engineering science program provides students with a broad foundation in engineering fundamentals. It's designed to prepare you to work across engineering disciplines for companies such as Century West Engineering, Microsemi, and Tribe Pilot, who are looking for engineers with diverse skills.

You'll take courses in mechanical, electrical, and materials engineering, as well as computer science, during the first two years. In the third and fourth years, you'll follow your passion by concentrating on engineering science, energy systems, or computer science.

Our Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science degree is designed with your career in mind.
