Do Design Throughout Your Undergrad Years
The Engineering Design Program is one big reason recruiters are looking to hire UA Engineering students and graduates.
All undergraduates take design courses and complete design projects that parallel real life – from portable solar ovens and water purifiers early on to date palm pollinating drones and data center robotics as seniors.
Most students take the yearlong ENGR 498 design course and participate in the UA Engineering Design Program, which culminates in Design Day.
