Department of Engineering Science

Trinity's department of engineering science is one of the nation's top-ranked, ABET-accredited undergraduate engineering programs. Our focus on teaching and design, in addition to our special attention to developing students' communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills, differentiates us from hundreds of other engineering programs across the country.

We consider design the essence of engineering, so it is the central thrust of the program. Our multidisciplinary curriculum allows students to understand how design functions across a variety of disciplines, including the physical sciences and mathematics.

Throughout a student's eight semesters at Trinity, design is utilized to motivate and tie together his or her  engineering education. This design sequence encourages a deeper understanding of how engineered products, processes, and systems work maximizes students' prediction, judgment, and design optimizing skills.

Additionally, unlike most engineering science schools, students here participate fully in a common curriculum that makes Trinity one of the leading liberal arts schools in the nation.

A degree in engineering science prepares students for professional engineer (P.E.) registration/licensing and careers in creative engineering design, investigative engineering, and engineering research and development. Almost a third of our graduates go on to further study, often at top graduate programs.
