The Loras College Engineering program provides students the opportunity to develop strong technical and design skills. The engineering program offers two Bachelor of Science degrees: Mechanical Engineering and General Engineering. Within the General Engineering major, students can choose among three areas of concentration: Biomedical, Computer, and Electromechanical. Each of these concentrations incorporates both theory and design, preparing students for professional careers after graduation. Students pursuing the Biomedical track are prepared to design and test electrical and mechanical systems that interface with biological systems. Students pursuing the Computer track focus on the development of computer controlled electrical and mechanical systems. Finally, students pursuing the Electromechanical track emphasize the design, development and testing of mechanical systems with electronic controls.
The Loras College General Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org. We are able to seek ABET accreditation for our Mechanical Engineering degree in 2024. Our ABET accreditation ensures our Engineering program meets the highest quality standards. We are one of only a few Engineering programs in Iowa accredited by ABET.
