Our Values

  • There is an ethical responsibility to improve the quality of life through the comprehensive application of engineering.
  • A values-based, multi-disciplinary approach to engineering takes on greater significance as new scientific discoveries and breakthroughs occur.
  • An understanding of science and technology is required for competent decision making in business, government, and diplomacy.
  • In keeping with the Catholic tradition, we are attentive to the development of the whole person as leader and engineer.

The world needs a different kind of engineer. We do have a highly technical curriculum, but we also teach our engineering students to understand how what they’re working on interacts with the world.
