Engineering Education

The Department of Engineering Education is here to help engineering students be successful in their graduate and undergraduate programs. From tutoring to research opportunities, engineering education faculty are here to prepare you to be a well-rounded engineer.

Graduate Programs

Interested in a career in higher education or teaching K–12? Engineering education launches your career to better understand research methods, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods of inquiry. The PhD and MS program offer opportunities that translate to industry, government, and education.

Undergraduate Programs

If you know they want to pursue engineering, but undecided on a discipline the First-Year Engineering Program (FEP) is for you! Rather than start in a specific program like mechanical or chemical engineering, FEP students have the flexibility to decide what they want to study later on in their college experience. After a semester or two at UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science, FEP students apply to transition to a major of their choice, a process based on their UC GPA and the courses they have taken.

Other services and resources in the department

Educators teach fundamental courses in engineering, and administrators teach calculus, physics and chemistry to engineering students. Services include:
  • Tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • Advising 
  • Other support services
  • Research opportunities

University of Cincinnati student Anna Lanzillotta dreamed of working as an engineer in the aerospace and aviation industry. Now, Lanzillotta is graduating with an electrical engineering degree, experience working at NASA for four cooperative education jobs, and a full-time job in the aerospace industry. Lanzillotta was selected for the 2022 Herman Schneider Medal, which is awarded annually to a graduating senior in UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science for distinction as an exemplary co-op student who has taken full advantage of the unique opportunities of cooperative education.
