Science & Engineering Profile

A premier education center for Science and Engineering

We combine science and technology with practical, in-depth education and teamwork skills in nationally recognized programs across our curricula in the College of Arts and Sciences with Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Behavioral Neuroscience, Data Science, and Psychology; in the School of Health Sciences with Biomedical Science, Microbiology & Immunology, and Health Science Studies; and in the School of Engineering with Civil, Industrial, Mechanical, and Software Engineering (all accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET), plus Computer Science.

Advanced science and engineering labs and workshop facilities enable students to work in small groups under faculty direction and supervision. Field studies and internships are integral facets of all Science and Engineering programs. Students may also plan to pursue graduate study in a variety of fields at Quinnipiac, including biomedical sciences, business, communications, various health care professions, molecular and cell biology, cybersecurity, education, law, medicine, and social work.

Career advisement, offered within each academic division, is a potent resource that bridges your college experiences with your career aspirations. Quinnipiac co-sponsors internships at more than 1,000 locations, including health care centers, media outlets, Forbes 500 companies, and government agencies.

The Learning Commons provides full tutoring assistance in academic subjects plus workshops to improve study skills, time management, and research techniques. 

It's an education that works—94% of our recent alumni were either employed or enrolled in graduate school six months after graduation.
