World-Class Engineers for World-Class Companies 

Companies who have hired our students have called them "Renaissance engineers".  Their hands-on, technical savvy, "can do" attitude and analytical work in a practical environment speak for themselves. Ready to engage in solving modern-day global engineering and business challenges and design real-world products, they are adaptable, creative, and able to transcend into non-technical realms. They are  entrepreneurial and professional leaders, who are able to manage and inspire others to do their very best, and they are excited to start their professional lives.
