A fresh start
Engineering is all about innovation; so is Quinnipiac. That’s why our new School of Engineering, which graduated its first class in 2016, is already helping students build bridges to a brighter future. With small classes and unparalleled access to our award-winning faculty, our student-centered education will instill in you the passion to make a difference in the world, as well as the technical know-how to get things done.
The world continues to change, and we’re changing with it. Our growing ranks of alumni are well trained, creative problem solvers who are poised to excel in a wide variety of fields. Students choose from five majors, including software engineering, which continually tops lists as one of the nation’s fastest-growing careers. The new school, with impressive state-of-the-art workshops, buzzes with fresh energy, new ideas and an ever-growing list of internship and corporate partners. Engineering is a dynamic field; why not kick-start your career at a dynamic school?
Employers are impressed by our students’ can-do attitude — and by what they’ve already accomplished. That’s why 100 percent of our 2016 graduates secured a job or gained admission to graduate school before graduating from QU. Whether you want to build databases or build bridges, you’ll be armed with a lifelong love of learning, as well as the personal and professional skills to thrive.
At Quinnipiac you will join a tight-knit group of diverse undergraduate students. Here, everyone from military veterans to high school valedictorians come together to form a friendly and supportive community. Our students thrive on interprofessional interaction; engineering students both work and play with students from QU’s many other schools.
Our engineering students are high achievers who are energized by tackling — and solving —real-world problems. Internships and a multitude of other hands-on experiences ensure that our students are well prepared to step into the world of work and to start making a difference immediately.
Student life at Quinnipiac extends far beyond the classrooms and high-tech workshops. Engineering students routinely participate in the lively social and recreational activities available on our three campuses. In addition, they can build lifelong connections by becoming involved with one of four prominent professional engineering associations that have established a lively presence on campus.
