At Catholic University, we take a hands-on approach to engineering education. Our engineering programs emphasize development and design. This focus is reflected in the numerous laboratory and design courses required by each program.

The curricula consist of three main components: math and science, liberal arts, and technical content specific to the major. In the first two years, the curriculum of all the engineering programs is very similar, and students can therefore transfer easily between programs during this period. The coursework during the last two years is major-specific and can be tailored to meet the student's interests.

Degree Programs and Advising

The School of Engineering offers programs leading to the bachelor's degrees in biomedical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering and computer science. Click on the links below to learn more about each of our ABET accredited undergraduate programs.

In the first semester in residence, each student will be assigned to a faculty adviser with whom he or she will be required to consult at least once each semester. Ordinarily, at the end of the first year in residence, engineering students will be asked to designate the department in which they wish to take their degree. The student will consult with the department chair and, when accepted, will be assigned to an adviser who will be a faculty member of the designated department. Changes in a student's program must be made in consultation with the adviser. Advanced placement is possible for high school students with the proper background and achievement.
