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.


Inter­disciplinary Research Institutes

Graduate Student

Leveraging ML in semiconductor design

Onoriode Ogidi-Ekoko ’15 ’16G was 5,400 miles from Nigeria when he defended his doctoral dissertation in electrical engineering, but he's right at home discussing his research into power electronics—work that could lead to compact, faster power conversion devices.

Designing faster, better ways to process data

Amanda Baran ’21 started her master’s research in computer science and engineering during her senior year. Today, she's working on next-generation distributed synchronization protocols so that online consumers can get what they want, when they want it.

Video: Engineering an alternative energy source

Research on tidal turbines by mechanical engineering PhD students Cong Han and Christopher Ruhl may someday help tidal energy become a viable source of renewable power.

Video: Improving disease diagnosis

Caroline Ferguson, a fourth-year PhD student in bioengineering, talks about her research into improving the diagnosis of both cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome, and the very personal reason that motivates her work.
