Welcome to the Engineering Honors Program

The Engineering Honors and Engineering Scholars Programs are designed to provide exceptional students with special opportunities for research, cultural enrichment, and leadership. Students are challenged to study passionately while they develop lifelong friendships with peers and world-class instructors.

Alyssa Varsanik

Alyssa is currently working on a project that investigates the quantity of adipocyte formation and bone deposition in vertebrate bone cores extracted from pigs. This research is directly related to patients dealing with osteoporosis and severe bone injuries.

About the Engineering Honors Program

The Engineering Honors Program (EHP) was developed at the University of Notre Dame to help foster intellectual curiosity amongst top juniors and seniors in the College of Engineering.

This program, initially designed for students performing research and completing a thesis, has expanded and grown its purpose. The EHP now strives to provide accessible resources to future engineering students, encourage camaraderie and discussion across classes and disciplines, and further individual experience in industrial and research engineering professions. In this spirit, the EHP developed the Engineering Scholars Program (ESP), a group of approximately twenty of the most talented sophomores and freshmen in the College of Engineering, to facilitate discourse among classes while encouraging intellectual depth and companionship among potential EHP members. Today, the EHP and ESP have more than forty eligible students from all majors and class years participating in honors courses, and the College of Engineering is working on further expanding the impact and mission of these programs within the Notre Dame community and beyond.

Engineering at Notre Dame

The College of Engineering's curriculum combines technical inquiry with a creative bent, focusing on novel methods of implementing and producing materials, components, devices, and systems.  The goal of these efforts is to develop innovations that will improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for all persons.  Consistent with the University’s Catholic mission and heritage, the College of Engineering’s mission is founded on the principle that the creation and transfer of knowledge should reflect a profound and complete respect for the dignity of all persons and for the greater common good of humanity.

The College continues to engage in transformational research in its core competencies — energy, biomedical/bioengineering, environmental science/engineering, and national/personal security — as they address the important needs of humanity, while inspiring students of all levels to scholarship and service.  It also strives to develop its expertise in electronic materials and devices, wireless and information systems, natural hazard mitigation, flow physics and control, geochemistry and geosciences, hydrology, and computational science and engineering.  Research outcomes are translated into commercial ventures whenever possible so that the efforts of Notre Dame engineering researchers can produce the greatest good for society.
