Areas of Study

Design Differently.

We consider design the essence of engineering, so it is the central thrust of the program. Our multidisciplinary curriculum allows students to understand how design functions across a variety of disciplines, including the physical sciences and mathematics.

Our focus on teaching and design, in addition to our special attention to developing students' communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills, differentiates us from hundreds of other engineering programs across the country.
