Welcome to DSU Engineering!

Engineering study prepares people to make significant contributions to society. Engineers are innovators, interweaving advanced mathematics, engineering sciences, and engineering practices with considerations of economic, social, ethical and environmental issues to create new systems and products. DSU pre-engineering class sizes are small, offering more personalized instruction than at a large university. The faculty who teach pre-engineering courses hold advanced degrees in the engineering specialties they teach and have worked on engineering projects with interesting companies and governmental organizations.
