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 engineering majors. In the first two years, the curriculum of all the engineering programs is very similar. 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

In the first semester in residence, each engineering major will be assigned to a faculty adviser. The student will be required to consult with their advisor at least once each semester. By the end of the first year, engineering majors will choose the department in which they wish to take their degree. The student will consult with the department chair. When accepted, the student will be assigned to an advising 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.
