Loyola’s engineering program has been constructed to provide breadth across engineering disciplines. With this in mind, the course requirements are identical for all four concentrations up to and including the first semester of the sophomore year. At that point, each engineering student must choose one of two paths—the mechanical/materials path, or the computer/electrical path. Prior to beginning their junior year, each student must subsequently select the single concentration that he or she wishes to pursue (computer, electrical, materials or mechanical engineering). Required courses for individual concentrations begin the first semester of the junior year. These “concentration electives” build on the strong foundation already set in the first two years and provide depth and more advanced treatment in specific subject areas. In this way, Loyola’s program balances breadth and depth, producing graduates who are well-equipped to tackle today’s real-world technical challenges.
