General Engineering

About Us

Vision

Consistent with Clemson University's vision of becoming a top 20 national public university, we will be a leader in engineering education and student development, attracting and producing students who are prepared to succeed in their upper level courses and in the engineering profession.

Mission

Consistent with the College of Engineering and Science mission, we believe in the challenging yet supportive environment that underlies the Clemson tradition. 

General Engineering offers introductory courses that teach basic skills necessary for success in upper level engineering curricula and in the engineering professions. Our main goal is to guide students in developing the ability to be responsible for their own education. 

General Engineering faculty and college staff work closely inside and outside the classroom to help students understand the challenge and satisfaction of an engineering career. General Engineering students are exposed to all engineering disciplines at Clemson from an academic and professional prospective. Students discover their interests, skills, and abilities and are assisted in matching these with a major that is the best fit for the individual student.
