Southern Utah University’s ABET accredited Engineering bachelor’s degree program acquaints students with a broad range of Engineering possibilities. Students get to experience courses that cover electrical, mechanical, and civil engineering. It is the only truly integrated Engineering program offered anywhere in the state of Utah and it is excellent preparation for graduate school or to begin a career in the Engineering field. Engineering classes are small at Southern Utah University and students learn in labs that are modern and feature the latest technology. Lower division Engineering courses typically include no more than 25-30 students. Upper division classes usually have no more than 10 students each. This gives students extraordinary access to their instructors who become excellent advisors and work side by side with students helping ensure they thoroughly understand key Engineering concepts.

Engineering is a hands-on program at SUU. Every course requires the completion of projects through which students demonstrate their understanding of the key concepts covered. In addition, through the capstone design project undertaken during the junior and senior years, each student plans, designs, and builds a scale model of a solar home that is fully tested for its thermal dynamics.

By the time students graduate from the SUU Engineering program, they are confident of their abilities to be accepted into an excellent graduate school program or begin a job in the Engineering field.
