St. Ambrose is a comfort zone for engineers; it's not so large that you'll get lost, whether it be in a lecture or a crowd. And our veteran faculty understand the skills you'll need to succeed in the working world by giving you plenty of experience, from your entry-level classes through the culminating Senior Design Course.
St. Ambrose University is the ONLY university in the Quad Cities offering Bachelor of Science degrees in Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and a dual degree option (Industrial and Mechanical engineering).
Industrial Engineering is concerned with designing, evaluation and improving systems. At St. Ambrose, our emphasis is on how humans fit into those systems to ensure safe and productive work.
Mechanical Engineering is the broadest discipline in engineering and uses a combination of human, material, and economic resources to provide solutions to societal problems.
Ambrose has everything: undergraduate research, small class sizes, approachable and engaging professors–all with the foundation of liberal arts.
"They were motivated to help support their kids and show them that you can do difficult things, even a bit later in life," said Jodi Prosise, PhD, an associate professor of engineering. "I think our younger students can learn from a different perspective as well."
