Loyola’s BS in Engineering offers students a chance to study engineering at a nationally respected Jesuit university in the world-class city of Chicago.
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. The class then breaks into small groups of 3-4 students, and conducts group activities (problem-based, collaborative, or service learning). To facilitate active learning, there are never more than 24 students in any Engineering course section. You can learn more about our active learning methodology, which facilitates student engagement and engineering retention, here.
Engineering is growing! Per the strategic plan, we are building the infrastructure to become an Institute of Engineering. This will be our next step towards becoming a future School of Engineering.
