WIU's School of Engineering is one of the newest ABET accredited engineering programs in the State of Illinois. We offer a multidisciplinary degree that allows students to build specialization on top of a fundamental core of subjects from Math, Science, Mechanics, Materials, Electronics, Robotics-Automation, Thermo-Fluids, Structures, Engineering Management, and Design.
In January 2017 we added a Mechanical Engineering degree and plan to add Civil and Electrical Engineering in the future although our general degree does a pretty good job with Civil and Electrical.
We also have a nearly full service machine shop, a maker space, and several 3D plastic printers. Our students do our design work and have helped companies and individuals in the Quad Cities region develop new ideas and prototypes. Our seniors routinely work on important projects for and in companies as part of their Senior Capstone Design projects.
If you want to learn more and explore the possibilities of working with and developing new engineers, by all means, come talk to us.
