Undergraduate Program Overview:Engineering students at a windfarm location

While the undergraduate engineering experience focuses on developing technically competent engineers, a strong liberal arts core is also emphasized. Courses are taught by professional faculty, not graduate assistants, and students are able to take advantage of a wide range of hands-on research opportunities and international study programs, while still graduating in four years. Approximately 98 percent of Notre Dame engineers pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, compared to 74 percent nationally.
