Earliest start date
Siena Heights offers a stand-alone general engineering program where students will be able to talk to other engineers because they will learn the basics in different disciplines.
Integrating the liberal arts into the program means students will know about the world around them before going out into the world to design projects and solve problems.
The liberal arts component also strengthens an engineer’s marketability when it’s done in a comprehensive way.
The program is based on active learning and not just lecturing. Students will be expected to produce a portfolio before graduation that shows what they have learned. Students will graduate with a bachelor’s degree from Siena Heights in general engineering, and offers degrees in mechanical, electrical, or chemical engineering.
Siena Heights will continue the partnership with the University of North Dakota, where students can earn either an additional bachelor’s degree from UND in Mechanical or Electrical engineering. Chemical engineering degree graduates usually major in chemistry at Siena.
SHU’s general engineering program will seek accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology’s Engineering Accreditation Commission as soon as possible.
- Active hands-on learning philosophy and projects;
- Integrating the liberal arts into the program to increase marketability;
- Being able to talk to other engineers to solve real-world problems through cross-training.

Program Tuition Fee
Internship opportunities will be encouraged, and the program is actively searching for new projects and partners. This practical approach will allow students in the program to build a portfolio that they can access even after graduation.
With an understanding of “core” engineering principles, graduates will know whom to ask and what questions to ask when they get out in the world in dealing with other engineers.
