Universities across the nation are redefining their engineering programs. In Loyola’s case, we are building our program. Read how Loyola’s Jesuit social justice vision is part of the re-imagining of engineering programs. Director Dr. Gail Baura applied social justice to not only the foundation of the new engineering program, but to the specializations. Through biomedical, computer, or environmental engineering, students learn to design high quality medical device software for all patients, to design sensors for the smart grid, or to manage water or wastewater treatment.

Engineering students visited Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine to work with MRI and CT medical devices. Learn more about how this experience with these critical devices fits into the Engineering engaged learning curriculum.
Congratulations to our Inaugural Class, the Class of 2019! Our seniors presented their industry-sponsored capstone design projects on April 24, took their finals the following week, and graduated on May 10. We hosted a graduation reception for our seniors and their parents immediately before the Commencement ceremony. At this reception, we presented the first Attoh-Prasse Award to our graduating senior with the highest GPA, Katie Woodhull-Fuget. Congratulations to Katie and all our graduates!
