As an engineering design major, you'll tackle design challenges for real-world clients beginning your first quarter on campus. In fact, you'll experience six different design studios by your junior year.
Engineering Design is perfectly suited for today's rapidly changing, global job market. You'll gain critical communication skills, a global perspective, and a comprehensive engineering education, setting you up for a rewarding career in any field.
You'll also be perfectly placed to choose an academic minor to complement your education, especially in the humanities and social sciences, enhancing your ability to address the world's biggest problems.
- You'll gain a broad understanding of modeling systems, rapid prototyping, computer-aided design, machine shop techniques, electrical circuits, and software programming languages.
