At Olivet Nazarene University, we believe the study of engineering opens the door to careers that make a difference. Olivet’s expert engineering faculty are experienced instructors who mentor, guide and teach from experience. They work to provide students with the best in professional preparation — from deep lecture to hands-on laboratory experiences to challenging projects for real-world clients.
State of the Art
The Department of Engineering is housed in the state-of-the-art Reed Hall of Science, which underwent a major renovation in 2014. The modern three-story facility provides the space, tools, and curriculum of a world-class program.
Areas of Study Within the Department
The Olivet Nazarene University School of Engineering offers the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.), an ABET accredited program under the General Criteria. Students may choose a concentration from various options.
Since 1998, the Engineering program at Olivet Nazarene University has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org under the General Criteria.
