The CBU School of Engineering offers a 50+ year legacy of individualized engineering education with ABET accredited degrees in the four major engineering disciplines: chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical.
Additionally, the School of Engineering offers:
The faculty of the School of Engineering seek to nurture the intellectual, professional, and personal development of our students as we prepare them to be effective, productive, and ethical engineers. A CBU engineering education is distinguished by personalized interaction between students and faculty, a strong laboratory component in the curricula, and an emphasis on real world experience through hands-on design projects and internships. CBU also strives to provide its students with the sense of ethics and professionalism necessary for entry into the engineering profession, related fields, and graduate programs.
Our students annually compete in regional and national conferences and competitions, advancing their skills in oral presentation, written communication, and real-time problem solving. During the senior year, students are challenged to apply what they have learned through a comprehensive design project often done in conjunction with their internship or an engineering practitioner. A majority of our students have paid internship experience by the time they graduate, providing them with a unique advantage in today’s high demand job market.
An engineering education from CBU built on these foundations creates a rich understanding of engineering concepts, enabling our graduates to sustain successful careers as critical thinkers and lifelong learners.
Our programs and activities are described on these pages but they can only provide an introduction. I am proud of what we do – and would be pleased to provide additional information or discuss any of our programs personally.
