At ECU, our highest priority is the excellence of our engineering program and we achieve this through small engineering classes taught by faculty, project based learning, and high faculty-student interaction. ECU Engineering prepares our graduates for 21st century engineering challenges. We believe successful engineers must have a broad base of technical skills to assure they can meet the engineering challenges of the future. ECU offers a Bachelor of Science in Engineering with five possible areas of concentration:
- Biomedical Engineering

Department of Biology:
We are a broad department that emphasizes integrative approaches drawing from across the life sciences. We have particular strengths in biodiversity, coastal ecology, and several areas of molecular biology and biotechnology.
