Harding BSME program thoughts
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The BSME program was challenging to a certain extent. Some classes were helpful and others felt "half baked." In my opinion the faculty and chair of the department are pushing the program in a much better direction with regards to academic standards and addressing critical gaps in curriculum.
