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

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