Academic Programs - Degrees Offered

The Kimmel School's academic programs are rigorous and challenging. Our focus on project-based learning is designed to allow you to use what you are learning in ways that reinforce your studies and, at the same time, give you opportunities to gain hands-on experience in the field you have chosen. That experience will give you a distinct advantage as you launch your career or apply for grad school.


Kimmel School faculty members are dedicated to providing first-class instruction as well as academic advice to keep you on track with your courses and extra encouragement when you need it. If you become a member of the Honors College, you will find rewarding opportunities to apply your knowledge in undergraduate research.

Student Computer Requirement

The Kimmel School uses virtual computing laboratories for instruction. All students enrolling for courses in the engineering and technology majors must have a laptop computer that meets standard university networking and hardware configuration requirements.

Students in construction management have formed a club and an honor society that allows you to be involved in study, social and service activities. Many other activities are available on campus and in the surrounding area.
