Featured Engineering School: BYU’s Fulton College of Engineering

Why Study Engineering at BYU?
Here is what they have to say:

The world’s expectation of its engineering and technical personnel will range from providing for interplanetary exploration and travel to solving such earthly problems as pollution, transportation, efficient energy use, new materials, and new products and manufacturing processes, as well as many other exciting and challenging needs.

The solution to man’s present and future problems will require people trained as craftsmen, technicians, technologists, and engineers working together as a team. Each of the departments in the Fulton College of Engineering and Technology has a faculty with special training and advanced education, including years of work experience, which qualify them to prepare students for these technical careers. Each department also has modern, well-equipped laboratories that provide exciting and valuable hands-on experience.

Their Mission Statement:
The mission of the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology at BYU is to help develop men and women of faith, character and technical ability who will become outstanding leaders throughout the world.

Engineering, with a strong emphasis on mathematics, and the basic sciences, has been offered at Brigham Young University since 1952. The School of Technology provides an environment where students and faculty can learn in a nurturing atmosphere with emphases in leadership, management and application of technology. Graduates of both engineering and technology find acceptance in the best graduate schools and in top industrial organizations. Many are in key positions in leading industries or have important assignments with government agencies. With the evident need extending well into the future for those skilled in solving technological problems, an engineering degree from BYU is a valuable professional accomplishment.


BYU’s Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology also did well in this year’s U.S. News graduate school rankings, earning top 100 marks in three specialty areas:

— 58th, chemical engineering specialty

— 68th, mechanical engineering specialty

— 79th, electrical engineering specialty

Featured Engineering School: the University of Utah

What does the University of Utah’s College of Engineering have to say?
For Undergraduate:
At the College of Engineering we provide our students with the highest quality education that prepares them for leadership positions and professional practice in academia, industry and government. With about 130 full-time faculty, we strive to create an environment where the highest standards of scholarship and professional practice are observed, and where our responsibilities to students are taken seriously and met. Our BS engineering degrees are designed to be completed in four years, and it is not uncommon for seniors to have great job offers while still in school.

The College recognizes that an essential component of achieving excellence includes practices that integrate teaching and research. In support of this mission, the College provides a comprehensive experience at the undergraduate level that promotes and nurtures engineering science and its applications through its educational programs, research and public service.

Scholarships, internships and rewarding research experiences are available in all of our educational programs. We welcome students to explore the educational opportunities available and encourage them to meet with advisors to take full advantage of all that the College and University have to offer.
For Graduate Degrees:

Nestled in the spectacular Wasatch range, the College of Engineering provides unique graduate training programs to highly qualified students leading to degrees that push the frontiers of engineering beyond its present borders. With internationally recognized faculty and state of the art research infrastructure, the college of engineering consistently places its graduates on successful career paths. During the past 100+ years, the College has graduated over 12,000 engineers. Many alumni have gone on to achieve international recognition in industry, manufacturing, research, education, law, medicine and many other professions.

If that that isn’t enough, how about an annual snowfall of 500 inches of fluffy, dry powder and 13 incredible resorts? Or perhaps you like mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, or rock climbing. The fact is that we have more varieties of landscapes, geology and recreational opportunities than even we can imagine. While our national parks are considered by many as treasures, there are many more places to see and things to do that are just as amazing and certainly less crowded! Come and check us out, most of our graduates never want to leave.

We invite you to explore our degree options by examining our degree programs and to contact faculty directly to enquire about openings in their research groups.
