Quinnipiac engineers don’t wait. Beginning day one of your first year, from your classroom learning to your independent research projects and internship experiences, you will be engaged. You could design software programs, create workflow processes or build devices that maximize efficiency and user experience. When you’re here, it’s more than just science, lab work and high-tech equipment; it's about developing the practical skills that are necessary in the workplace.
Students and faculty alike seek out meaningful partnerships, and see people as valuable resources. In keeping with Quinnipiac’s philosophy of interdisciplinary learning and problem-solving, we regularly look for opportunities to partner with other disciplines — from business and entrepreneurship, to health sciences, medicine, law, communications and liberal arts.
Manufacturing companies and software developers, such as Enfield Technologies, North Mill Equipment Finance and Medtronic, host engineering students and their faculty mentors as they work on their capstone and independent research projects. These off-campus learning experiences expose students to the kinds of environments they’ll work in as professional engineers.
