Design is our Differentiator
Trinity's B.S. in engineering science focuses on teaching analysis and design. Combined with our development of communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills, this differentiates us from other engineering programs. We emphasize a deep, fundamental understanding of the physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering science, though students may also choose to specialize in chemical, electrical, or mechanical engineering through elective courses.
One of the nation's top-ranked, ABET-accredited undergraduate engineering programs.
Design sequence present in all eight semesters.
Common core curriculum blends the best of the liberal arts.
About a third of our graduates go on to top graduate programs.

When You Graduate
Join a strong network of innovative problem-solvers
The engineering science program is ideal preparation for careers in creative engineering design, engineering research and development, and investigative engineering. Many choose to further their career through professional engineer (P.E.) registration and licensing. Engineering science graduates also attend nationally recognized graduate schools.
Approximately 65 percent of our graduates go directly into industry and business, while the remaining 35 percent enter top rated graduate schools in electrical, chemical, or mechanical engineering. Some graduates have opted to continue their studies at medical school or law school.
