It could be the solution to an especially vexing problem. A building that’s more earthquake resilient. A dazzling display for your phone or gaming console.  An agile, two-legged robot for search and rescue missions. Engineers make such innovations possible. Engineers from Oregon State University.

You can be one of them. Get hands-on, real-world experience, work with world-renowned faculty and make real contributions to groundbreaking research.

Our graduates are in high demand. Companies are looking for people who combine technical capabilities with communication, collaboration and leadership skills — all of which are part of the curriculum at Oregon State.

Imagine all the possibilities to improve how we work, live and play. The path from possibility to reality starts here.

Oregon State engineering students consistently score well above the national average on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam required for the profession. Each year, the passing rate for Oregon State students is above 90 percent, compared to the national passing rate of about 75 percent.



Learning by doing is one of the best ways to prepare for a career, and internships are increasingly important for landing a great job after college. Oregon State is a founding member of MECOP, a statewide university/industry partnership that offers two paid six-month internships during the third and fourth years of a five-year program of study.

OSU offers a resource-rich environment that encourages you to combine your studies in engineering with opportunities like the Honors College and study abroad programs. You’ll find challenging, unique experiences that support your academic, professional and personal growth — and have fun, too.

Earn your degree from an accredited engineering school.

All Oregon State engineering programs are fully accredited and offer a Bachelor of Science degree through a basic four-year curriculum. In the College of Engineering, you’ll spend your first two years building the foundations for your major with a focus on engineering principles, math, sciences or programming languages. For those who are dual-enrolled in a degree partnership program or transferring to OSU, our engineering programs allow for the first two years to be taken at a community college.
