Introduction

From communication systems to bridges, from satellites to manufacturing - society depend on engineers. A KU engineering education helps students understand technical principles and the background behind them and prepares them for the changes ahead. Most graduates assume responsible positions in business, industry, education, or government, and our engineering programs also provide an excellent background for other careers. Many graduates are CEOs of major companies or enter fields like medicine or law.

Mission

The mission of the school is to provide students a high-quality educational experience, to generate and apply knowledge through research, development, and scholarly activity, and to serve society, the state of Kansas, and the engineering profession. In accordance with this mission and with KU’s mission, all undergraduate engineering programs and the computer science program must meet these objectives. Additional objectives are specified in program descriptions.

Facilities

Engineering faculty members and graduate students are major users of the facilities and services of many research laboratories and centers across campus and among our research partners at other universities:
