Engineering Program at Sacred Heart University

Interested in engineering? Sacred Heart launched two engineering program opportunities in Fall 2017 – a Computer Engineering bachelors degree and a 3+2 dual degree program in partnership with Columbia and RPI. In the dual-degree program, students spend 3 years at SHU followed by 2 more years at one of our partner engineering schools, and earn bachelor’s degrees in both a liberal arts discipline (from SHU) and an engineering major (from Columbia or RPI) at the end of the five year program. The combination of a broad liberal arts background and a technical engineering degree prepares students to work as leaders in engineering and science fields, highly sought after in the job market. As “Engineers with Heart”, SHU students are particularly poised to apply engineering design in the service of the human community, inspired by the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and our liberal arts core.
