Engineering uses science, math, economics, social and practical knowledge to solve real-world problems. Engineers improve transportation, develop better nanotechnologies for healthcare, design electrical systems, protect the environment, purify drinking water, streamline manufacturing and harness nuclear energy, among many other undertakings.
In ACU's Engineering program you will also develop the practical skills to help you succeed as an engineer: the ability to speak persuasively, the ability to go into the workshop to make and test things, and the ability to work effectively in teams.
