Chemical reactions are happening all around you—your body converting food to energy, the degradation of biodegradable products in the environment, and ingredients mixing and bonding together to make your favorite recipe. Chemical engineers are experts in chemical reactions—from very large (industrial size) to very small (nanoscale).
Electrical engineers are at the foundation of all electronic devices—such as your mobile phone, laptop, tablet, LED lights and your car. They create technologies that connect the world and work in various industries from power and communications to health care and avionics.
You order a laptop online and expect it to be delivered to your door within 48 hours. That simple transaction sets in motion a complex web of activities involving information, manufacturing and delivery systems. Industrial engineers design, build and analyze and continuously improve these systems.
Mechanical engineers research, design and manufacture products that, simply put, improve people’s lives. By applying the properties of forces, materials, energy and motion, mechanical engineers are involved in nearly every product you can imagine.
Not Sure Which Engineering Degree? It’s OK!
If you’re not sure what type of engineer you’d like to be, you’re not alone. About one-third of our first-year students enter as engineering undeclared.
Accelerated Degree Programs
Undergraduate engineering degrees that can be completed on an accelerated schedule, including in three years. These accelerated degree pathways should be considered as one of the many options students have for completing their studies.
