Why Engineering?  Why Utah State?

Because You Can Be Creative

Engineering is fundamentally a creative pursuit. As an engineer your job is to solve problems different than how they've been solved before. Below are some links to sites which explain a little more about the exciting aspects of an engineering career.

Because You Can Make A Difference

What are some of the ways engineers make a difference in the community? Look around—not much around you hasn't been affected by some sort of engineer. Skyscrapers are designed under the direction of a structural engineer. Your personal computer has benefited from the attention of a computer engineer. An electrical engineer designed the wireless phones you see everywhere.  The list continues: your microwave, the roads you drive on, airplanes, space shuttles, bridges, prosthetic limbs and even some of the foods you eat.  A glass of water straight from your kitchen faucet - you've got it; thank engineers!

Because You Have The Potential To Earn

What is the average income of an engineer? It depends on what type of engineering you're interested in. In general, however, freshly graduated engineering students make between $35,000 and $50,000+ per year. For more details click on the following links:
