Dean Stephen DeWeerthThe P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University has some of the most innovative and dynamic engineering programs in the country.

At Lehigh, our educational philosophy is founded upon inquiry-based learning — an integration of experiential learning, independent research endeavors, and instructional teaching. Our faculty share a passionate commitment to teaching, mentoring, and building cutting-edge new programs, and our instruction and research facilities are state-of-the-art. The result is a unique and dynamic learning environment.

Our goal is to help you create an educational path that matches your talents, interests, and career aspirations. You may already know the area of engineering that’s right for you, or, like most prospective students, you may be interested in science and mathematics, but aren’t quite sure how that translates into a course of study in engineering. In either case, this guide can help you navigate your options.

For example, if you have a knack for physics and electronics or love building things, then mechanical, structural, or electrical aspects of engineering might suit your skills. In these fields, you’ll encounter groundbreaking studies in advanced materials, nanotechnology, design, and manufacturing. If you’re passionate about mathematics and information technologies, our programs related to computing, systems engineering, and data analytics provide fresh insight into a range of areas, including electronics, software design, computing architecture and optimization, wireless networks, systems theory, and financial engineering.

We know that many of our most talented engineering students have career interests that go beyond engineering. To foster such aspirations, Lehigh has designed some of the most innovative interdisciplinary programs in the world. They combine engineering with complementary fields of study, and include Integrated Business and Engineering (IBE), Computer Science and Business (CSB), and our Integrated Degree in Engineering, Arts and Sciences (IDEAS). Students graduate from these programs with the skills that will help them lead in the global economy.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us—we are happy to answer any questions you might have. Thank you for your interest in Lehigh Engineering!
