Our introductory engineering courses have a workshop environment so students experience lectures, lab work, discussion and collaboration all in the same environment with a curriculum informed by the best engineering education research. Upper-level courses all have small class sizes to give students quality interactions with their instructor and classmates. Most courses involve team-based projects with either design, experimental or computational work.
The Lied Science and Mathematics Building (above) houses the engineering program, and has a CAD software, a machine shop and a rapid prototyping lab with 3D printers so students can rapidly develop engineering models. Cross-collaboration research projects in the Lied Building help expose students to other science and math disciplines.
Outside of the classroom
Our students are prototyping and conducting research all the time, no matter if it's their first semester on campus or their last.
Sponsor-paid summer research experiences give students time to work full-time with faculty while internships and trips to science conferences are also available.
All engineering, engineering physics and physics majors can participate in our professional mentor program. It introduces students to a working professional who can provide advice and help students develop professional networking while they're at Doane.
