College of Engineering

Engineering at Wichita State goes beyond the classroom by offering a variety of experiential learning opportunities. In response to the recommendation of the National Academy of Engineering report on the future needs for engineering graduates, the College of Engineering implemented the Engineer of 2020 program.

To fulfill the requirements for an Engineering BS degree at WSU, each student completes the program course requirements including at least three of the following seven activities:

  • Cooperative Education or Internship
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Global Learning or Study Abroad
  • Multidisciplinary Education
  • Undergraduate Research
  • Leadership
  • Service Learning

This program makes the educational experience more meaningful to the student and the student more desirable to local and national industries.
