Bachelor of Science in Engineering
California National University
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.

California National University was founded in 1993 after recognizing the need for mid-aged students to be able to continue learning while maintaining their careers and family lifestyle. CNU offers an innovative approach to distance education in its combination of self-study with direct personal contact and technology as well as its one-on-one instruction from faculty. This college offers undergraduate programs, graduate programs, a certificate program and individual courses through extension. The institution awards bachelors, masters, specialists and associate degrees.
Students need to own a computer and have access to the Internet to be able to have access to distance learning programs and software. One-on-one communication with professors is guaranteed, giving students maximum feedback and exdivert support. This is done through a sequential course syllabus with assignments and guided learning experience. Everything is done online, including turning in assignments, taking exams, and receiving that vital feedback from faculty and classmates. Distance learning provides a flexible, individualized program recognizing that students have other responsibilities.
