Bachelor of Science in Engineering

NNU's interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree gives students the option of choosing a concentration in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or engineering physics. This degree prepares students to enter the workforce, take licensure exams, or attend graduate school.

Engineering Research Teams

Students have the opportunity to compete nationally by joining one of our engineering research teams, including teams that compete in robotics, work with NASA, and launch their experiments into space.

Engineering Graduate Success

Graduates from our program have a nearly 100 percent acceptance rate when applying to graduate schools such as Purdue, Georgia Tech, Colorado State, Washington State, and Indiana University.

Employers of NNU engineering graduates rave about our students. NNU engineering has had over 250 graduates over the past 55 years, many of whom are now in leadership roles in engineering companies or universities around the country, including: Aptina, Boeing, Cornell, DC Engineering, Dynetics, Idaho National Lab, Intel, Johns Hopkins, Lockheed Martin, Micron, MIT Lincoln Labs, NASA, Pacific Northwest National Lab, Raytheon, Smithsonian, Synopsys, Triquint Semiconductor, and Teledyne Brown.

Engineering Careers

  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Electrical Engineer
  • Inventor/Entrepreneur
  • Research Scientist
  • Corporate Executive

Service Learning

Senior projects focus on designing and delivering solutions to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people in developing nations. Students have the opportunity to travel the world on engineering-related mission trips. An engineering missions minor is available for students who feel called to use their skills on the mission field.

Real-world Experience

Our professors focus on making sure that your education includes much more than a textbook. Hands-on learning and team design projects are our focus, made possible in our fabrication, mechanical and engineering labs. Summer internships in industry environments and the senior capstone project also give students the opportunity to learn first-hand what it is to be an engineer.
