Loras Engineering Program Mission
The engineering program engages students in a rigorous, challenging, and comprehensive study of the fundamentals in engineering, mathematics, and science required to analyze, design, build, test and operate electromechanical systems in a manner that emphasizes interdisciplinary leadership that contributes to the profession and to society.
Loras College offers a high quality education with a small school atmosphere.
- Dedicated Engineering Faculty who all have a Ph.D. degrees and industrial experience at such companies as Dow, IBM, Trane, and Stinar.
- Most Engineering majors apply classroom concepts during internships. These internships are typically done in the summer. The proximity to employers means that students can also work at an internship part-time while still in school.
- Students engage in design projects starting during the first year and continuing to the major senior design project.
