What is Engineering?

Engineering can best be described as science applied to a practical purpose. Engineers design new processes, operations, and machines, and improve the efficiency, operation and performance of manufacturing systems, physical structures, such as buildings or transportation systems, and electrical and electronic systems. Engineering is the foundation of the technology that improves our world.


Why an Engineering education?
Engineering minds enjoy dealing with the schematics or design elements behind devices and structures. From defense to infrastructure to telecommunications to consumer gadgetry, with an Engineering degree you can specialize from the start or investigate the many areas offered at a college or university.

Engineers affect the quality of our lives and a quality education is important. Whether you are interested in a degree or if you are just expanding and updating your knowledge by taking additional course work, instructional programs will prepare students to learn and apply solutions.
