Excellent Career Opportunities
With internationally ranked programs taught by expert faculty, UD’s College of Engineering is providing students the tools, experience and unparalleled education that will make them competitive in a global job market. Cross-disciplinary training programs and collaborative research opportunities provide us with exciting new ways to develop highly skilled and well-rounded engineers who are focused on solving the grand challenges in engineering: health, sustainability, security and quality of life.
The University of Delaware is a leader in problem-based scholarship and connects student learning to real life in every major. Well-established internships for every major and civil engineering’s co-op program provide students valuable work experience and networking opportunities—critical advantages in a competitive job market—while allowing students to earn their undergraduate degree in four years.
UD College of Engineering students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, internationally renowned faculty and other resources. The Patrick T. Harker Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Laboratory brings together teaching, learning and research in an integrated way, so that research informs the curriculum content and students learn by exploring real-world problems.
The Mechanical Engineering Design Studio is a 3,500 square-foot “maker-space” for group projects, computer-aided design, prototyping and design validation. It is a community space that is open 24-7 for mechanical engineering students and their collaborators.
Our internationally recognized faculty includes 33 named professors, 6 National Academy of Engineers members, 51 NSF and DOD faculty career and young investigator awards and 17 University teaching award recipients. World-class faculty share their expertise through 21 research centers and institutes, providing a fertile training ground for future engineers.

What’s special about this option?
Since many high school seniors are unsure what engineering or computer science major is right for them, we have created the option of allowing students to enroll as Engineering Undeclared. Students use the first semester course, Introduction to Engineering (EGGG 101), to explore
the breadth of engineering and computer science options. This allows students to make an informed choice of major when they register for spring semester classes. Successful completion of the fall semester permits students to finish any of the nine majors in the normal four years, provided they are on track with the calculus sequence for the chosen major. This is a very common selection for many of our top incoming freshmen, with almost 20% of students enrolling as Engineering Undeclared.
