Program Highlights

Quinnipiac University undergraduate commencement exercises for the School of Engineering Sunday, May 21, 2017, at the TD Bank Sports Center on Quinnipiac's York Hill Campus.

Experienced and accessible faculty


Our highly educated and enthusiastic faculty members bring 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


You'll 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 for you to get involved and get things done.

High-tech and hands-on


You'll learn in world-class labs with the latest equipment, and will go on to gain real-world experience through research, summer internships and a mandatory senior design project that seeks to solve real community problems.

Outcomes

Building a successful career

When students arrive in 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 — and some are even testing the limits of physics as professional hockey players.

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.”
