Experiences Beyond the Classroom

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.
