Engineering at RMU

Engineers are problem-solvers who use science and mathematics to find solutions to the challenged facing society. Problem-solving in the 21st century involves more than just an understanding of engineering principles. Today's engineering projects involve teams of people with diverse educational backgrounds. Instead of narrowly focused individuals, employers seek talented problem solvers able to contribute to improving designs, processes, and products.

RMU worked closely with leading companies such as PPG Industries, Westinghouse, American Home Improvement Products, Cutler Hammer, PGT Trucking, Bayer, J&L Specialty Steel and Mobay, among others, to design engineering programs that provide graduates with the skills that employers value the most. These skills include not only engineering fundamentals, but also oral and written communication, project management, teamwork, interpersonal skills, business knowledge, problem solving, critical thinking, global perspective, and an internship.

All engineering students take a course in their final year that is designed to bring all of the learning over the prior four years into sharp focus. In this course, Integrated Engineering Design, students work in small teams to conceive, design, and produce a product. The course is intended to permit students to draw upon all of the skills learned up to that point and exercise them in a real-world application. It is the final "learning by doing" assignment, and it requires the full use of The Learning Factory facility.

Two Undergraduate Engineering degrees are offered -- BS in Manufacturing Engineering and BS in Engineering with concentrations in Software Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering.
