Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Our Engineering major at Elizabethtown College, located in south-central Pennsylvania, is a rigorous program designed to lead students to a technical career in the workforce or to a graduate school to study engineering. We strongly believe in producing well-rounded generalist engineers who understand the mechanical and electrical systems of a design and how those systems interact with the environment and with industry. We challenge our students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills, pushing them to become innovators of the future. Our students receive personal attention from our faculty members and gain hands-on experience in design and fabrication.

Our engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET ( and features open-ended team projects every year. This accreditation ensures that we meet global standards for properly instructing our engineering students and allows our students to work worldwide.

We encourage students to take upper-level coursework in a specific area of interest by specializing in one of our concentrations, which include: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Civil Engineering and Industrial and Systems Engineering.
