Engineering Science

Program Goals

Currently, Lincoln University has two dual degree programs. These programs are “3 + 2” degree programs. A Lincoln University student spends three years at Lincoln University and two tears at the partner institution. One Program is a partnership with Drexel University.

More recently, Lincoln University and Morgan State Universities have partnered to establish a Dual Degree Program in Engineering as of March 1, 2007. Morgan State will offer degrees to students admitted to their program in the following majors: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Industrial Engineering.

Lincoln University students who are interested and qualified have the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from Drexel University or Morgan State University in addition to receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Lincoln University (“3 + 2 Program” or “the Dual Degree Program”).

 

Outcomes

The ESP must document program student-learning outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives. The ESP will assess during its periodic review that students are able to:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and applied sciences
  • Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • Formulate or design a system, process, or program to meet desired needs
  • Function on multidisciplinary teams
  • Identify and solve applied science and engineering problems
  • Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • Communicate effectively in Engineering Science
  • Understand the impact of solutions in a global and societal context
  • Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning knowledge of contemporary issues

Requirements
