College of Engineering

At Bucknell's nationally ranked College of Engineering, we are training a new generation of engineers to go beyond problem-solving to influence, impact and create change. 

Questions are encouraged here. We call our students engineers from the day they set foot on campus, and empower them to design and innovate under the close mentorship of our world-class faculty. Our students learn by doing from their very first class, and quickly transition to authentic industry projects with real-world corporate, government and nonprofit partners.

The pace of technological change gets faster every day. Unleash your curiosity and see where it takes you.
