Engineering students have access to one of the newest engineering learning facilities in the state and have learning opportunities far beyond the classroom. As a result, students have access to resources that allow them to complete complex senior design projects and compete in national and international competitions.

Students are admitted to the School of Engineering after declaring their major. This can be done during their first semester if they have no English or Mathematics deficiencies.

Transfer Credit

IAI Transfer Credit

Transfer students' transcripts are evaluated for general education requirements upon entry to SIUE. Once a student has declared an engineering major, the transcript is further evaluated by Engineering Student Services for engineering-specific courses.


What does accreditation mean and why is it important? Accreditation is the process through which a program receives certification as meeting a prescribed industry/professional standard. It means that our students receive the education in their fields that best prepares them for licensure, certification, and employment in their chosen fields.
