Engineering Fundamentals

In their first four semesters at Speed, students will take 18 hours of courses from the Department of Engineering Fundamentals. From Engineering Methods, Tools, and Practice I and II, to three Calculus-based Engineering Analysis courses and Differential Equations for Engineering, these courses lay the foundation for students’ success in their chosen engineering discipline.

Student Story
