Engineering Studies for the Common Good

EMU’s pre-engineering major will expand to a full engineering major in 2016.

Our expert faculty take the practical study of engineering and provide a top-rate technical education within a Christian liberal arts context. Rigorous academics and advanced problem-solving meets Anabaptist values and personal formation.

Studies at EMU include an emphasis on cross-cultural awareness, a focus on values and ethics, and an understanding of sustainability. EMU STEM students across a variety of disciplines often feel more prepared for graduate school or jobs than their counterparts from larger institutions.

Hit the ground running in the field of computer and mechanical engineering!

Engineering Facilities

EMU is completing a $4 million renovation of the Suter Science Center, which will house a rapid prototyping lab with 3-D printers, computer design lab; engineering support lab, and spaces for faculty/student collaboration to support engineering and other science programs.


what students say

“My pre-engineering classes have given me a level of understanding I couldn’t get in a large lecture hall. All my classes are interconnected and build on each other, giving me the essentials in math, physics and chemistry I need to advance.”

-Jake Bontrager-Singer, pre-engineering student from Goshen, Ind.

Engineering students work closely with expert 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 College and went on to earn master’s and doctoral degrees at the University of Illinios in theoretical and applied mechanics.

This program is pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
