Bradley’s seven engineering programs prepare you for varied careers in engineering-related fields.
As a student in Bradley’s Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology, you can study civil, electrical, industrial, manufacturing and mechanical engineering, as well as construction and manufacturing engineering technology. The programs are consistently ranked among the nation’s best in U.S. News & World Report. Within those degrees, you can further specialize in biomedical engineering, computer, energy, process, systems and technology concentrations. If you’re unsure of which path to take, you can start as an engineering major and take time to decide which program you prefer. In addition to classroom work, you will complete a senior capstone project with real-world applications. Some of those projects pair you with business students. Outside of class, you can participate in a number of student organizations and professional societies that promote scholarship, fellowship and personal growth among engineering students.
Bradley’s engineering degrees successfully prepare you to enter the workforce or attend graduate school. In recent years, almost all Bradley students found employment or continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re working at places such as Archer Daniels Midland, Boeing, Caterpillar, Deere and Co. and Northrop Grumman. They’re attending graduate schools at the University of Illinois, Georgia Institute of Technology, Ohio State University and Stanford University.
