Engineering Programs

Below is a brief explanation of every major offered at the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology at BYU. If any of them interest you and you would like more information, please contact us!


Chemical Engineering


Perhaps you’ve heard the slogan “plastic makes it possible;” well, chemical engineers make plastic possible, and thousands of other products. Combining skills in math, physics, and science, chemical engineers take raw materials and turn them into products we use every day.

Civil & Environmental Engineering

Have you ever been fascinated by the design of a new building, bridge or freeway? If so, maybe you should consider a career in civil engineering. Civil engineers are responsible for major infrastructure projects from bridges and dams to roads and railways. They are also actively working to protect the environment through green building, sustainable designs, and environmental restoration projects.

Electrical & Computer Engineering


If it lights up, makes noise, or uses batteries, an electrical engineer was more than likely involved in its design. From cell phones to satellites, heaters to hybrids, electrical engineers are vital to the design and functionality of any electronic device. Equally vital, computer engineers design chips, software, hardware and networking devices.

Mechanical Engineering


From designing world-class sports cars to automating the manufacturing of artificial limbs, mechanical engineers make a living by making our lives easier and more comfortable. Just about anything with moving parts requires the technical design of a mechanical engineer.

Construction and Facilities Management: Construction Management Emphasis


With training in construction, architecture, business management, finance and even real estate, construction management grads leave BYU ready to take on leadership positions and oversee projects from concept to completion. Construction managers use their technical skills and business acumen to coordinate success.

Construction and Facilities Management: Facility Management Emphasis


Facility management students learn to maintain and manage buildings, maximize productivity, and even focus on protecting the environment. Whether they are purchasing and revamping an old building or designing and building a totally new one, FM graduates are great assets to their organizations.

Industrial Design


Imagination and application define the field of industrial design. Industrial designers are responsible for the aesthetics, form, and function of everything from cars to kitchen appliances. Students learn about the evolution of ideas, from sketches to technical 3-D models, and on to production.

Information Technology


Computer engineers make computer components; information technologists make those components work together. With training in hardware, software, networking and digital communication, IT professionals are in high demand and can find jobs in many fields around the world.

Manufacturing Engineering Technology


Manufacturing engineers do more than design product components – they oversee a product’s life cycle from concept to mass-production. This multidisciplinary field combines aspects of economics, quality control, business organization, strategic planning, product design, manufacturing, and engineering.

Technology & Engineering Education


Combining a broad engineering education with creativity, design, communications and teaching skills, the technology and engineering education program trains the next generation of science and engineering instructors. While some accept positions as corporate or industrial trainers, most of the program’s graduates go on to teach basic engineering courses in middle and high schools. TEE graduates inspire the innovators of the future and are in high demand.
