Welcome to the School of Engineering

The School of Engineering provides unique educational opportunities for students interested in engineering concepts and their practical application at both the undergraduate and masters levels. Our mission is to prepare students to assume engineering positions in industry with the potential to advance to leadership positions. All undergraduate programs are accredited by ABET.

All of our programs feature hands-on approaches to learning the dynamic discipline of engineering. All undergraduate majors participate in a three-semester co-op program where the student gains a year of full-time, paid experience in industry. Almost two-thirds of our courses have laboratory components and many include industry-sponsored projects. The bachelor’s degree programs culminate in interdisciplinary team-based projects, which are again, predominantly industry-sponsored.

Our graduate programs are flexible and designed to deepen your expertise, offering opportunities for both the working professional, and the student seeking a more traditional, full-time research-based experience. Engineering is a profession whose practitioners have values embodied in a creed and code of ethics.
