Engineering at Messiah College

Be part of something much bigger than a classroom exercise. Messiah College’s unique engineering program allows students to develop projects with real world clients.

If you enjoy taking things apart to figure out how they work and make them better, then Messiah College's engineering program, which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, might be the right fit for you. 

The program provides a balance of technical knowledge, broad education and Christian faith, in addition to a variety of real life experiences through the College’s unique Integrated Projects Curriculum (IPC). In the IPC, you’ll work on projects that meet the needs of a real-world client. You’ll learn to think outside the box and engage problems in the broader context of environment, culture and economics by developing process, design, teamwork, leadership, project management and planning skills.  

At Messiah College, you’ll find plenty of ways to link what you’re learning in the classroom with hands-on engineering experiences.
