    Our students, alumni, internships and more overlaid on maps.

The college offers a unique educational and research experience. Our faculty are leaders in their fields with research programs as unique and diverse as our students. We offer eight undergraduate degrees and graduate programs in five disciplines. The college also boasts a global reputation through its distinctive International Engineering Program (IEP) that leads students to two degrees: a B.S. in engineering and a B.A. in German, Spanish, French, Italian, or Chinese. Students also spend a year abroad, taking courses at our partner universities and gaining experience through paid internships with international engineering companies.

We invite you to explore our website and visit us to learn more about how we’re thinking big in a small, beautiful place.
