NNU's Engineering program will prepare you for a great engineering career, to become a licensed professional engineer, and to succeed in completing a Masters or PhD degree in graduate school.

Graduates from our program have a high FE exam pass rate and job placement rate. Our graduates also have a high grad school acceptance rate at outstanding graduate schools such as Columbia, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Alabama, Vanderbilt, and Carnegie Mellon.

NNU Engineering professors really care about you, both inside and outside of the classroom. They all have years of industry experience to draw on in mentoring you and giving you hands-on training with lab and fab equipment.

Our small program is focused on the highest-quality undergraduate education. We have a faculty to student ratio of 15:1. Grounded in the engineering fundamentals for the first two years, you then concentrate on one engineering discipline in your final two years. At the same time, you benefit from NNU's broad liberal arts educational, spiritual, and residential campus experience. 85% of our engineers graduate in four years, while the national average is five years.

NNU's BSE program has been ABET accredited since its first graduating class in 2014 and has graduated nearly 60 grads through 2018. Its history extends back to 1955 when Dr. Gilbert Ford started the Engineering Physics program, which has over 300 alumni all over the world.
