Prepare to Become an Innovator

Today’s complex world values innovators with skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Nova Southeastern University’s B.S. in Engineering will help you develop these skills, along with those in economics and social and practical knowledge in order to invent, innovate, design, build, maintain, research and improve a variety of structures, tools, components, processes and more.

At NSU, you’ll explore the techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for engineering practice. You’ll participate in hands-on projects in which you’ll conduct experiments and analyze and interpret data. Other projects will give you opportunities to design systems, components, or processes. Additionally, you’ll become proficient in areas including operations, performance testing, manufacturing, cost scheduling, benefit-cost analysis, training and support and sustainability. An engineering degree can lead you to a number of challenging and rewarding careers. NSU gives you an edge, no matter what path you choose.
