Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering


Named one of the best Christian-based engineering programs in Tennessee, Lipscomb provides students the opportunity to prepare for an engineering career in an educational environment that also encourages Christian character. And it shows. Our undergraduate students are being accepted into esteemed graduate schools from Johns Hopkins to Harvard to UCLA and Vanderbilt, and are offered jobs and internships by some of the top engineering firms in the country, such as SpaceX, Boeing, Jacobs, Intel, Barge Design Solutions, Nissan and Bridgestone. We equip our students to serve at the forefront of their fields among the brightest, most creative change-makers, and lead their peers with knowledge, innovation, integrity and deep compassion to build a better future. 

In 2022, the university established the School of Computing within the Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering. The new school offers real-world curriculum, equipment, and resources for future software developers and cyber-defenders.
