Southern Arkansas University can move ahead in starting a new bachelor’s degree in general engineering in the fall semester. The school in Magnolia got the go-ahead for the degree Friday from the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board. SAU president David Rankin said there are already more than 20 students who plan to enroll, and local industry helped SAU make a strong case for the value of these graduates.
