Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

It is Clarkson's goal to produce graduates that make significant contributions in their chosen fields while also recognizing their responsibilities to society. The University offers 4-year Bachelor's programs in Chemical, Civil, Environmental, Electrical, Computer, Mechanical, Aeronautical and Software Engineering. We also have a degree program in Engineering and Management that is accredited by both ABET and the AACSB. All undergraduate programs provide students with a foundation in science, engineering, humanities, and management. As part of the undergraduate experience, students gain relevant professional and engineering experience through Co-ops, SPEED team participation, semester abroad and undergraduate research programs. The graduate program offers MS, ME and PhD degrees in many of these same engineering disciplines, plus several interdisciplinary fields at Clarkson's main campus in Potsdam, NY and at Clarkson's Capital Region Campus in Schenectady, NY. Graduate and research programs are aligned with the University's strengths in advanced materials, environment & energy, bioengineering, and simulation-based science & engineering. Graduate and research programs include significant industrial involvement.
