Supporting Design Throughout
All Undergrad Years
The Craig M. Berge Engineering Design Program prepares students to meet the world’s engineering challenges, and is one big reason recruiters seek to hire the college’s students and graduates.
From first-year competitions and maker fests to Interdisciplinary Capstone senior projects, this four-year program ties design, manufacturing and commercialization to all levels of the undergraduate curriculum. It immerses students in hands-on design, community projects and business instruction, major-specific design courses, and capstone and entrepreneurship projects.
"The design program is an amazing way for students to get a dress rehearsal for the real world. While their college coursework provides them with the knowledge they’ll need one day, nothing quite prepares students for the rigors of professional engineering like this program." -college mentor and former sponsor advisor Huy Le
