Developing leaders in modern engineering
The programs offered within the School of Engineering all have a common goal: to develop creative problem solvers who will not only be expertly prepared for a successful engineering career, but who will be poised to make a difference in the world around them. Our curricula officially recognize the National Academy of Engineering’s “14 Grand Challenges for Engineering” facing global society in the 21st century. Behind everything we do is an emphasis on improving sustainability, health, security and joy of living for people all over the world.
Laying the foundation for your future begins with a sense of what that future should look like, and this may not be clear when you begin your studies. If you aren‘t sure which engineering specialty best suits your talents and aspirations, we will help you discover it. Answering this question is built into our curriculum, and covered exclusively in a unique class: The World of an Engineer — an exploratory course that exposes students to various elements of each engineering discipline we offer.
Our faculty will guide you on the precepts and practices of modern engineering. With a small faculty-to-student ratio, our professors can provide the personal attention and make sure that your time here is defined by academics and practical experiences that bring you closer to the career that makes sense for you.
Our commitment to student-centered education includes unparalleled access to our award-winning faculty, small classes (capped at 24 students) and hands-on learning — in our state-of-the-art workshops, as well as real-world settings. We build your skills, your confidence and your resume so that you’re ready to hit the ground running before you even graduate.
