Don’t just change the world — make it

Our faculty members are practicing engineers who are passionate about what they do. They know how to unlock that same passion in their students. Under their guidance, and alongside dedicated peers from other engineering backgrounds, you’ll do more than solve complex problems. You’ll develop new ideas and find new ways to approach the world's challenges.

We emphasize innovation, safety and sustainability in each of our programs. Moreover, you'll have many opportunities to put these values into practice. Special partnership programs, exciting internships with top manufacturers and service learning trips around the globe are just a few ways you'll bridge the gap from engineer-in-training to engineer-in-practice. 

The tools are all here. It’s time to put them to use.

Student Spotlight: Computing and Engineering

Hephzibah Rajan headshot

Quinnipiac student named 2023 National Engineering Intern Student of the Year

Quinnipiac student Hephzibah Rajan ’23, a computer science major from Muscat, Oman, has been named the 2023 National Engineering Intern Student of the Year by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

The award is presented by the Cooperative and Experiential Education Division of the ASEE. Rajan was recognized for her summer internship with CVS/Aetna.

“I interned with Aetna over the summer after my junior year,” Rajan said. “Initially, I worked on code maintenance which in simple terms is reading code and making sure that each line was being run. I was essentially increasing code coverage. Over time, I started picking up other tasks as well. I learned about their machine-learning models and was also able to propose an alternative method for one of their projects with the help of my mentor."
