A bachelor’s degree is a post-secondary degree awarded after completed 120 credits. It usually takes eight semesters to complete a Bachelor’s degree. While completing an undergraduate course, candidates have to study general courses and chose a major specific subject. A Bachelor’s degree can also be called a baccalaureate in certain countries.
Students of a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering will study the general concepts of engineering. This will allow them to choose a degree of their preference in order to specialize. The program is aimed at students who are not sure of what engineering degree they want to study.
