Welcome To Engineering
Thinking about an engineering education, why Tech? The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) Program and the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) Program are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Arkansas Tech University is only one of three publically funded universities with ABET accredited BSEE and BSME programs in the state of Arkansas. We also have a Master of Engineering degree program. Our class sizes and those throughout the university are small.
Our engineering classes are all taught by engineering professors or industry professionals. We are a teaching university so students and their educational success is the primary focus of the faculty and the administration.
What is engineering?
A simple definition is the application of math and science to solve problems and harness nature for the benefit of humankind.
Has an engineer touched your life today? From the second you wake up until the second you go to sleep, the work of engineers has an impact on your life. It begins with the alarm clock, the water out of the faucet, every switch you turn on, every text, your car, the road, the computer, the remote, the thermostat for your HVAC system in your house, the packaged food you eat, etc. Is your life better because of engineers... you bet!
Electrical and mechanical engineering are two fundamental engineering disciplines. Our graduates work in a variety of fields from designing electronics for jets, manufacturing, to the production of power. The list is long and broad.
