Program Details

California National University offers a Bachelor of Science in Engineering as an online degree program to students pursuing studies in fields of their choice, i.e., mechanical, electrical, environmental, computer science, computer engineering, or quality assurance. The one-on-one online instruction allows for students to balance career and family responsibilities by having a flexible online schedule.

Applicants are required to submit a High School Diploma or GED equivalent and expected to have a background in algebra, physics, plane geometry, trigonometry, and chemistry. If an applicant lacks this background, prerequisite courses will be assigned from the CNU Basic Science curriculum. Students who have not taken Calculus I will be required to take a math placement test.

The Bachelor degree program requires a completion of a minimum of 126 units of academic work with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better in General Education, Basic Sciences, General Engineering, Engineering Electives, and a final Capstone Project. Students must take 30 units of the General Education lower level pision. CNU offers College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams for students to take in order to meet this requirement instead or in combination with courses. The General Education courses have a variety of subjects within the areas of communications, computation, social science, computer technology and practice, humanities, and life/physical sciences. 

Additionally, students are required to complete 30 units of Engineering Electives in the upper pision including computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, and quality assurance science.  Students will strengthen their knowledge in basic sciences, including chemistry and physics as well as their ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems and communicate effectively.
