1. Jesus Christ is Recognized as the First Creationeer and the Reason Why We Create
Creating new materials, new structures, and new systems in an entrepreneurial setting while integrating Christ in everything we do is the basis for Creationeering and the vision for the Liberty University School of Engineering (LUSE).
2. Career Opportunities with Your Engineering Degree
100% of our engineering students are employed within a year after graduation. Interaction with leaders of high-tech corporations offers excellent pathways to career opportunities. This is accomplished throughout each semester when leaders give presentations as guest speakers and participate in job fairs.
3. Great Jobs at High Salaries
The largest salaries of any major coming out of Liberty University are from the School of Engineering. Our students have been offered jobs at Lockheed Martin, BWXT, Framatome, Sandia National Laboratories, Army ERDC Labs, NASA, and more.
4. Diverse Disciplines and Degree Options
Several disciplines are available for our engineering degrees: Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial and Systems, and Mechanical. The Bachelor of Science (BS), Master of Science (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) are offered.
5. Degrees with Professional Accreditation
Our undergraduate programs are all accredited by ABET (except for our civil engineering degree, which will apply July 2023). Liberty University is accredited by the Southern Associate of Colleges and Schools (SACS). We also encourage the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in preparation for a Professional Engineer (PE) license.
6. Simulation-Based Design Throughout the Curriculum
All classrooms, faculty offices, and residence hall rooms are connected by an on-campus wireless network that provides access to the internet. High-Performance Computing (HPC) is a unique enabling technology for the Liberty University School of Engineering. This allows for simulation-based design throughout the curriculum in all of our engineering disciplines.
7. Highly Respected Professors
LUSE professors have earned advanced degrees (with nearly 90% having their Ph.D. in technical fields), have experienced real-world engineering industry, and now offer teaching excellence in the classroom. Each is grounded in his/her Christian faith and is committed to helping you succeed academically and spiritually.
8. Competition Teams and Clubs
Engineering roles are always performed in the context of collaborative environments. LUSE hosts several teams and clubs to help integrate in-class learning and to help realize the creationeering process. The competition teams are Formula SAE car, Baja SAE, Human Powered Vehicle, Mars Rover, VEX Robotics, and Renewable Energy.
Our clubs include American Society of Civil Engineers, Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, American Society of Industrial Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Engineering & Missions Research Club, High-Performance Computing, Creationeering, Robotics, Society of Women Engineers, Society of Automotive Engineers, and Amateur Radio Club.
9. Practical Engineering Experience
LUSE works with students to help them gain internships, and semester-long and summer engineering jobs with local corporations. Students also have the opportunity to assist faculty with research.
10. Soft Skills Training
As an engineering student, you will learn “soft skills” that are valuable in the workplace. We will train you to work in teams, understand social relationships, think critically, and be a leader by living the example of a Champion for Christ.
