Engineering and technology are vital to the US economy and its prosperity. Engineering and technology offer exciting career opportunities. Engineering and technology have been a part of the Southern Illinois University since 1945. Its engineering programs were first accredited in 1971, and its technology program was first accredited in 1972. Currently, the College of Engineering covers a wide range of engineering and technology disciplines, which are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), Inc.

Our focus is on student success. The College of Engineering has excellent academic programs. Its student/faculty ratio is very low, its sizes of classes are small, and students receive personal attention from instructors. Its Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) creates a supportive environment for students both academically and socially.
