College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Bucknell's College of Engineering is focused on providing the best possible educational experiences to our students. Special opportunities that contribute directly to that goal include our introductory engineering course ENGR100-Exploring Engineering, which gives students not only the opportunity to experience hands-on work in various engineering disciplines, but also explores engineering ethics case studies and culminates in team-based, design-and-build projects with local clients. We also offer opportunities to participate in the Grand Challenge Scholars Program, undergraduate research directly supported by the College and University, semester-length and short-term engineering study-abroad experiences, affinity housing around the theme of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a special empowerment program known as the Engineering Success Alliance, design and business competitions, various MakerSpaces, and interdisciplinary degree programs with the School of Management and other majors across campus. The engineering student body at Bucknell is diverse with a total of three-fifths students of color, international, or women. Women alone make up one-third of the engineering student body. The Bucknell engineering curricula offer many integrated laboratory and design experiences in well equipped undergraduate laboratories and project spaces. Students are encouraged to participate in summer internships facilitated by our Career Development Center, and there are many companies that directly recruit on campus both for internships and permanent employment.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
