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 throughout each semester, job fairs, and guest speakers offers excellent pathways to career opportunities.
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 support the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam for 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 (nearly 90% have their Ph.D.), have experienced real-world engineering industry, and now offer teaching excellence in the classroom. Each is grounded in their Christian faith and is committed to helping you succeed.
8. Competition Teams and Clubs
Engineering jobs are always practiced in the context of collaborative team environments. LUSE hosts several teams and clubs to help integrate the in-class learning and to help realize the creationeering process: Formula 1 SAE car, Baja, Human Powered Vehicle, Mars Rover robotics, Vex robotics, and renewable energy.
Our clubs include Robotics, High-Performance Computing, Gaming, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Armed Forces Communication and Electronics Association, Cyber Defense Club, Engineering & Missions Research Club, Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, and an Amateur Radio Club.
9. Practical Engineering Experience
LUSE works with students to gain internships, summer, and through-semester engineering jobs via local corporations. Faculty also assist students 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 on teams, understand social relationships, think critically, and be a leader by living the example of a Champion for Christ.
