Southern Introduces Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering
With classes beginning in Fall 2023, Southern Adventist University is launching a new bachelor’s degree in engineering. This program will build on the associate degree in engineering that the university has offered for many years and will be housed in the Physics and Engineering Department.
“This is a program that prospective students have been asking for,” said Ryan Herman, director of Admissions. “We’re excited that now engineering students will be able to complete their bachelor’s degree here and enjoy the full Southern experience.”
The program will include the option of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering concentrations. With a strong emphasis on math and science, the degree will hone students’ problem solving and analytical thinking skills, preparing them for a fulfilling engineering career or serving as a launch pad for an advanced degree in a variety of fields.
“This bachelor’s degree in engineering is a wonderful addition to Southern’s academic offerings,” said Tyson Hall, PhD, associate vice president for Academic Administration and dean of Graduate and Professional Studies. “Because engineering is a service-oriented profession that emphasizes designing practical solutions for the benefit of others, our new engineering program fits naturally with Southern’s mission to equip students to embody professional excellence and pursue Spirit-filled lives of service.”
