A new model for engineering education

Experiential learning helps students apply what they learn in the classroom to the real world, discover their passions through hands-on projects, and make an impact on the world around us. It is a student-centered approach that builds on Lehigh's proud tradition of engineering, with learning environments and approaches design for, and fueled by, the concept of creative inquiry.
