    First-year engineering major Ben Zook wrote a program to generate and send emails from his cell phone.

As an EMU engineering student, you will flourish in a rigorous academic program with small classes, where professors know you by name and are available for 1:1 mentoring. Our liberal arts program prepares you to be a team leader and critical thinker who will use engineering skills to serve the common good.

Core values of sustainability and cross-cultural awareness are central to preparing engineering graduates who are well-prepared to pursue graduate studies or careers in industry.

Engineering Major Curriculum

EMU’s engineering courses are comprised of a rigorous core of both math, science and engineering classes.

Professors

Engineering students work closely with professors Esther Tian and Daniel King, both engineering specialists, and other mathematics and computer science faculty members.

Tian holds all three of her degrees, including a doctorate from University of Virginia, in mechanical engineering, while King double-majored in music and physics at Goshen (Indiana) College and went on to earn master’s and doctoral degrees at the University of Illinios in theoretical and applied mechanics.

Engineering Facilities

Engineering students benefit from the recently renovated physics labs in Suter Science Center.

An additional $4 million renovation of the west section Suter Science Center, will house

  • a rapid prototyping lab with 3-D printers
  • computer design lab
  • engineering support lab,
  • spaces for faculty/student collaboration to support engineering and other STEM programs.
