Applied and Computational Mathematics

Assessment examinations are available for Precalculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, and Calculus 3/Multivariable Calculus. Each assessment exam is an advisory tool to help you and your academic advisor gauge your preparedness for mathematics at a proper level here at EP. Please note that an exam is not a means to “pass out” of a particular course, and waivers will not be granted solely based on an exam score.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering has launched three new focus areas. Get the details about these exciting new topics.

  • Aerospace Engineering: Students study the analysis, design, and development of aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, and rockets. Coursework provides a broad foundation in aerodynamics, aerospace materials, structures, propulsion, flight dynamics, orbital mechanics, systems integration, and aerospace manufacturing. 
  • Hypersonic Technologies: Students learn the complex multidisciplinary challenges associated with sustained hypersonic flight, spanning speeds from Mach 5 to orbital velocities. Additionally, courses cover the fundamentals of high-speed aerodynamics, propulsion, materials, controls, and thermal management unique to the hypersonic flight regime. 
  • Ocean Engineering: Explore topics such as ship hydrodynamics, offshore platforms, subsea pipelines, ocean instrumentation, wave/tidal energy, and environmental monitoring.
