Since 1896, Penn State has been a leader in engineering education, research, and service to the profession and the world community. In the years ahead, we will continue our efforts to attract and develop the highest quality faculty, student body, and staff in a supportive teaching, learning, and working environment. Our goal is to create the very finest educational, research, and outreach programs.
We have more than 9,000 students across all of the university campuses and the College of Engineering ranks 2nd in bachelor’s degrees awarded and 6th in the number of degrees awarded to women. There are 12 different majors offered. More than three million dollars was donated to research for the college in 2011 and 6.5 million in scholarships.
The college’s educational vision centers on helping students prepare to become world-class engineers. Penn State engineering graduates will be aware of the world, effective in teams, solidly grounded, innovative, technically broad and effective as leaders.
