Loyola’s four-year undergraduate Engineering program combines the University’s exceptional liberal arts resources with robust coverage of both traditional and emerging areas of engineering to produce graduates who are ready to excel in today’s diverse and evolving environment. Students receive broad-based instruction in engineering fundamentals while also choosing to specialize in one of four concentration areas: Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering. Dual-degree Engineering concentrations are also available in either Mechanical & Materials Engineering or Computer & Electrical Engineering.
No matter which path you choose, you’ll receive an outstanding engineering education based on the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence. You’ll benefit from learning through hands-on laboratory work, opportunities to conduct research alongside expert faculty, internships, student organizations, in-class speakers, special on-campus events, and annual STEM-focused career fairs. Together, these experiences create a robust curriculum and holistic learning environment that prepare graduates for successful admission to graduate and professional schools or for direct entry into the field.
