Bachelor of Science in
Engineering Degree (B.S.E)
Engineering Degree Program
Oral Roberts University’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree empowers you with a background to apply mathematics and natural sciences to turn ideas into reality. You will be able to apply creative solutions to real-world problems within the context of a Christian world view. This major is accredited by ABET, Inc.
You’ll experience a liberal arts foundation and have the choice of selecting a concentration in Electrical, Mechanical or Computer Engineering. The opportunity to apply what you learn is available through research and design projects such as creating a racecar, a remote-controlled minesweeping robot, a robotic exoskeleton or a shark-bite meter.
ORU hosts several clubs and student societies for you to get involved in that provide enrichment and professional networking:
- The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
- Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
- Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
Above all, our unique mission to develop Holy Spirit-empowered leaders through Whole Person Education can set you apart as an inspiring engineer called to make a difference. You’ll experience a life-transforming education that will prepare you for a career in today’s complex technology-rich world.
