The Engineering Division emphasizes close interaction between students and faculty, opportunities to conduct research, complete hands-on design projects, and a variety of ways to study abroad. Engineering at Lafayette also gives students an advantage: strong programs in the liberal arts that help you imagine and understand the social, cultural, and political consequences of implementing new technologies. Students can pursue an integrated dual major with international studies.



Students enjoy close interaction with faculty, including many opportunities to conduct research and complete hands-on design projects.
