Major in Electrical, Industrial or Mechanical Engineering

At Alvernia, students majoring in engineering are being trained to be fundamentally sound and application-ready. Students can choose to major in electrical, industrial or mechanical engineering. Alvernia’s engineering programs feature a design-forward curriculum. In each of their first two years, engineering majors work in teams to complete a real-world design project mentored by an industry partner or research faculty. Third-year students may participate in a semester- or summer-long industry internship or research experience. Fourth-year students work in interdisciplinary teams to complete a year-long capstone, a real-world project with an industry partner.

The John R. Post School of Engineering houses new labs for undergraduate learning, containing millions of dollars of hands-on, real-world equipment and a continuously expanding maker space. Faculty-taught courses feature small class sizes with athlete-friendly scheduling. Regularly scheduled lunch-and-learn presentations feature local industry members looking for summer interns and full-time employees and research faculty presenting their innovative work.
