Engineering and Computer Science

Engineering students

SPU Engineering and Computer Science graduates are ready to:

  • Serve God and others by developing real solutions to real problems.
  • Lead teams to design creative, sustainable systems — close to home or globally.
  • Engage the world by understanding what people need and how to help them.

Here’s where it all begins:

Mechanical Engineering (BS) — You’ll learn to design and build systems that move, stand strong, and transfer energy, such as transportation systems, structures, and engines. Accredited by EAC-ABET.

General Engineering (BS) — This degree is a blend of mechanical engineering, electrical/computer engineering and other courses that can be selected according to the student’s interests such as physics, biology, business, music, etc. Accredited by EAC-ABET.

Electrical Engineering (BS) — Where you’ll learn to design high-tech new systems for everything from tiny smart sensors and communication devices to new modes of transportation and efficient power generation. Accredited by EAC-ABET.

Computer Engineering (BS) — Focused on the design and construction of computers and computer-based systems, with a strong basis in computer science, digital electronics, and engineering. Accredited by EAC-ABET.

Computer Science (BA, BS) — Learn about computer software and hardware, and how data is transformed into useful information. The BS in CSC emphasizes scientific and engineering foundations and applications. Choose the BA in CSC to combine computing with another major or minor in any other field.

Information Systems (BS) — In which you’ll learn how to integrate high-tech solutions with organizational processes to meet the information needs of for-profit and nonprofit organizations.

3-2 Transfer Program — Where you can complete three years of engineering at SPU with two at UW or WSU. Graduate with a BA in Physical Sciences from SPU and a BS from the other school.

You can also minor in Appropriate and Sustainable Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Computer Science.
