Your real world experience starts almost as soon as you start this engineering program.

Engineering students carefully measure a machined part using a dial caliper

You’ll be a well-rounded engineer with practical experience and sound technical understanding—even conducting research with faculty as early as your first year, in areas such as microelectromechanical systems, smart sensing, and control devices and systems.

Our program offers an emphasis in either electrical or mechanical engineering to build upon your understanding of general engineering principles.
