Be the solution.

Study engineering at Walla Walla University.

 

Every day engineers delve into problems and are challenged to develop the solutions. They make it possible for us to communicate, travel, and harness and efficiently use energy supplies. A degree in engineering from WWU’s Edward F. Cross School of Engineering will prepare you to be the solution in this challenging and rewarding career path.

The School of Engineering offers a baccalaureate degree in engineering with concentrations in Bioengineering, Civil, Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as an interdisciplinary program in Bioengineering Science and a certificate program, the Global Humanitarian Engineering Emphasis (GHEE). These programs will give you the ability to specialize in the areas that interest you most while building a strong, practical foundation to equip you to pursue the jobs that appeal to you.
