Open House

Washkewicz College of Engineering

Featuring chemical/biomedical, civil/environmental, electrical/ computer, computer science and mechanical engineering programs, the College is located steps away from Fortune 500 businesses and world-class institutions. Students engage in unique hands-on learning experiences alongside renowned professors and local engineering professionals.

  • In state-of-the-art classrooms, professors draw on engineering expertise and incorporate projects from local companies into the curriculum. Class sizes enable you to receive a personalized engaged learning experience from professors you’ll get to know on a first name basis.
  • Outside the classroom, students learn from local professionals and explore possible careers through internships and co-ops in organizations such as NASA, Parker Hannifin Corporation, the Cleveland Clinic, and more. Our Co-op program enables students to alternate semesters betweenacademic study and full-time, paid work  at  engineering companies.
  • There are also 16 active engineering student clubs and organizations on campus.
  • The College of Engineering provides over $600,000 annually in scholarships to our students.
  • The College recently received $15 million from Donald and Pamela Washkewicz and the Parker Hannifin Foundation to break ground for a new $60 million engineering building scheduled for completion in December, 2017.
