Prospective Students

At The William States Lee College of Engineering we believe in learning by doing, so all of our programs include a practical component. Freshmen design and build projects ranging from spring-powered cars, to computer chip circuits, to balsa wood bridges. Hands-on learning continues through the senior year, where students team up to tackle real-world industrial projects such as bomb-detecting robots and high-pressure piping systems for nuclear plants. Below are some of the programs we offer to help you reach your goals.
