Loyola's BS Engineering program is ranked #58 (out of 273) in 2024 U.S. News & World Report's Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs (No Doctorate) and #5 (out of 418) in American Society for Engineering Education's (ASEE) Percentage of Bachelor's Degrees Awarded to Women.
A hallmark of our program is our emphasis on active learning. Rather than delivering a full lecture in each course, each professor provides a mini-lecture to go over fine points of the homework. To facilitate active learning, there are never more than 24 students in any Engineering course section. Active learning increases the retention of female students, students of color, and first-generation students; and is one aspect of our social justice-informed program. We are proud to be the first Engineering program in the U.S. to fully integrate social justice and Engineering in our curriculum. Learn more about our active learning methodology, which facilitates student engagement and engineering retention. LEARN MORE
