Program Highlights

High-tech and hands-on


All our students learn in world-class labs with the latest equipment; they go on to gain real-world experience through research, summer internships and a mandatory senior design project that seeks to solve a real community problem.  

Our faculty: experienced and accessible


Our highly-educated and enthusiastic faculty brings years of experience to the classroom. You will have the opportunity to build a strong working relationship that will continue long after you leave campus. 

Interprofessional excellence


Our students routinely work alongside medical, nursing, law and other students to complete projects that positively impact the community. Active student chapters of national associations continue to crop up on campus, creating more opportunities to get involved and get things done

Building a successful future

When students arrive to our engineering programs, they begin to envision a future of possibilities. When they graduate, they do so ready to start building it. If our alumni aren't pursuing advanced engineering degrees in some of the nation's most prestigious graduate programs, they are developing parts and components for submarines and helicopters; revitalizing airports, bridges and other infrastructure; or making hospital emergency rooms safer and more efficient.

Our graduates are self-starters and innovators who take their commitment to quality, safety and sustainability wherever they go. Independent engineering consultants such as Severud Associates have taken notice, as have Sikorsky Aircraft, Pratt & Whitney and a multinational tech giant called Google, among many others.

Life after Quinnipiac

A seamless transition from student to professional

Our engineering education is based in theory, but enhanced by practical experience, from class projects to internships that usually start the summer after sophomore year. So whether you want to build bridges or databases, we’ll help you develop the technical, professional and leadership skills you’ll need to join the growing ranks of our successful alumni.  

“Talk to your professors and tell them what you're interested in doing. If you show genuine interest and willingness to work hard, there will always be an opportunity.”
