Why Choose Engineering at UNH?

The 21st century is an incredibly exciting time to enter the engineering and applied science fields. Changes in the workplace are of such magnitude that it has amounted to a paradigm shift in both methodology and practice. The Tagliatela College of Engineering at the University of New Haven has kept pace with these changes, adapting our programs so that our graduates can contribute to their fields as soon as they enter the work force. We offer undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Cyber Systems, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. In addition, we have Master's degrees in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Cyber Systems, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Engineering and Operations Management, Industrial Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Outstanding Facilities

Our facilities are extensive, and reside precisely on the cutting edge of technology. Prospective freshmen take note: You'll have access to our first-rate laboratories from year one.

You'll see engineering and applied science principles in action at our Multidisciplinary Foundation Laboratory; the Instrumentation and Mechanics Laboratory; the Thermo/Fluids Laboratory; the Interfacing and Control Laboratory; the Cyber Forensics Laboratory; and the Wireless Networking Laboratory. Our state-of-the-art multiuse labs fuse lecture, learning, practice, collaboration and computing zones. Reconfigurable desks and worktables allow for innovative learning practices, and the use of Smart Classroom technology.

Freshmen can also participate in our Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) and our new Entrepreneurial Engineering LLC. These are groups of first-year engineering students who occupy a residence hall wing together, take two core courses together, and participate in activities centered on engineering and entrepreneurial thinking.

Modern and Relevant Focus Areas

Our spiral curriculum, which focuses on project-based learning and design, allows for students to get immersed in engineering right away and consistently throughout their academic career. In most majors, students can develop a specialization in a modern and relevant focus area. We offer the following focus areas that will make our graduates highly sought after in the decades to come:

Renewable Energy. The nation and the world are facing challenges in fulfilling society's ever-growing demand for energy while conserving fossil fuels and reducing carbon emissions. Energy derived from sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels is increasingly being developed to supplement fossil fuels.

Sustainability. Development of products and services that conserve our natural resources for future gen­erations is a hallmark of sustainable societies. Sustainability requires a balanced consideration of societal needs, economics, and the environ­ment. Small and large companies, as well as government agencies, are giving more and more attention to sustainable development.

Wireless Communication. Many of the electronic devices that enhance our daily lives communicate wirelessly. In time, wireless communication will become ubiquitous in all of our lives, and more and more of our business and personal equipment will be built to communicate data wirelessly.

Cyber Forensics. With computers being used in every aspect of business and personal productivity and communication, they are also being increasingly used for committing crimes. Digital devices are a rich source of evidence for detecting and prosecuting criminals. Organizations are rapidly growing their cybersecurity and incident response capacity.

Outstanding Careers

Every faculty member, facility, lecture, club, or activity in the Tagliatela College of Engineering has one design — to excite your love for the art and science of engineering and help you make a stunningly successful career of it. Unique and innovative courses, undergraduate research, internships and co-operative education have all led to an outstanding career placement rate for our graduates. Some of the many companies and organizations that have hired our recent graduates include Boeing, Electric Boat, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Pitney Bowes, Pratt & Whitney, Sikorsky Aircraft, and United Illuminating.

With an engineering or applied science degree from the University of New Haven, you'll have all the tools you need to become a dynamic part of this extraordinary new era!
