Pre-Engineering Mission and Learning Goals

The mission of the dual-degree engineering program at CSB/SJU is to provide solid preparation for engineering coupled with the many advantages of a liberal arts education.

Engineering, at first glance, might seem out of place among the other liberal arts degrees offered at CSB/SJU.  The sciences at CSB/SJU offer the opportunity for both very specific scientific training and research as well as very diverse educational experience. Students at CSB/SJU are encouraged to ask questions, seek answers and delve into areas of interest. Questions could be about economic development or poetic interpretation, but they can also be about tensile strength and refraction of light.

Engineers from CSB/SJU have the technical training and the leadership and communication skills to be successful in all areas of engineering.
