Elon Engineering Program Mission

The Engineering Program at Elon University prepares students to enter the engineering profession as well-rounded, technically proficient engineers and world citizens.

The unique nature of our program stems from its interdisciplinary emphasis and commitment to service.

Elon’s engineering program provides a stronger and broader foundation than is available in a traditional engineering curriculum, not only in the natural sciences and mathematics, but also in the liberal arts, with multiple learning opportunities to pursue engineering projects and scientific research.

We value:

  • a variety of active-learning approaches in the classroom,
  • a supportive, inclusive, and collaborative environment among students and faculty, and
  • mentoring that promotes the development of substantively contributive citizens and ethical engineers.

Our graduates are team-oriented, proficient analytical and creative problem solvers, and exhibit broad intellectual ability that complements their lifelong passion for learning and societal welfare.
