Engineering education at Bucknell has come a long way since the University offered its first course in the field in 1893, as part of a new program in "surveying, city surveying, and civil engineering overseen by the math department. Today, the College of Engineering is one of three pillars of Bucknell University, offers bachelor's degrees in eight disciplines to more than 700 current students, and is ranked No. 7 among undergraduate engineering programs at schools not offering doctoral degrees by U.S. News & World Report.

The College of Engineering is preparing for a yearlong celebration of how far we've come in the past 125 years and the exciting new directions where we're headed for the future. Please join us in marking this momentous milestone in Bucknell history by saving the date for the events below, and by sharing memories and photos of your days in Lewisburg by using the form at the bottom of this page. Submissions will be compiled into a digital scrapbook and incorporated into celebrations throughout the year.
