ENGINEERING

INNOVATION ACROSS DISCIPLINES

Norwich was founded on the idea that people learn better by doing, and our engineering students never shy away from getting their hands dirty.

The program stresses lab work, internships and a focus on solving real-world problems. Majors are encouraged to form relationships with colleagues and professors in other departments and universities to better understand the dynamics of real-world projects. Whether you join an Antarctica-based science expedition or work to improve a NASA mini-satellite, increase the efficiency of solar panels, or revive a hydro-powered electrical plant, you'll apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom to solving grand challenges of the 21st century.

  • Program Details

    We offer students in Norwich University’s interdisciplinary BS in Engineering program an innovative approach to interdisciplinary engineering education that is guided by current challenges of broad human concern that address societal needs. As a major, you'll become proficient in the skills necessary to contribute to solving complex and multi-disciplinary problems. Our curriculum includes innovative problem-based seminar studio courses that employ modules to develop competencies in engineering fundamentals.

    The BS in Engineering program prepares majors to excel in engineering and related fields and to act upon the engineering profession's commitment to bettering the world. Dedicated faculty provide fundamental, laboratory-oriented, hands-on education in engineering and related fields that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving abilities and motivates students to consider the societal and environmental consequences of their work. We empower majors to be leaders in their profession, community, nation, and the world.

    Upon completion of the program, students are awarded the BS in Engineering, are prepared to sit for Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (F.E. exam), and have a foundational understanding of engineering and science fundamentals.
