A career in the College of Engineering

Join us in the College of Engineering! You’ll find all the usual components of a comprehensive university campus, all located right here.

Our college is a community that values unique perspectives and bridging boundaries to accomplish goals that transcend individuals. We are innovative, incredibly talented people and we are proud of what we do and of the ways in which we make a difference on our campus, and well beyond. As a college, we are committed not only to the success of our students, but supporting our faculty and staff in their efforts, too.

Speaking of research, we are a hotbed for collaboration, and on our campus, engaging in transdisciplinary research is easy. We involve students at all levels in research because those experiences better prepare them for their professional endeavors and because we believe that the best ideas germinate when many minds converge. We seek to continuously improve what we do. And we cultivate an inclusive, welcoming environment that encourages, celebrates and rewards your success.
