At our core, engineers are professional problem solvers. We see unmet needs, understand the constraints on choices, use mathematics to solve simplified models and get our hands dirty to test for solutions.
Join a program where everyone knows your name. Our small class sizes and elite faculty lend themselves to your personal success and challenge you to integrate faith and learning. You’ll also be taught in an environment built for engineering — our brand new building is home to small classrooms, study spaces, an innovation studio with the latest tools, cutting-edge laboratories and a machine shop.
With unique opportunities like engineering missions, professional societies, world-class partnerships and innovative design projects, you’ll thrive and grow here. And once you graduate, you’ll join your peers studying in top-ranked graduate programs or working for some of the world’s best companies.
Our program is ABET-accredited.
