Real-life experiences and opportunities await you

Are you ready for a rewarding career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM)? Whatever your interest, we will prepare you for the future through a rigorous, practical education focused on problem-solving in one of many STEM majors offered in our six departments in the College of Engineering.

You can also enhance your degree with many options for real-life work experience right here in Brookings or nearby. Most of our students complete part-time work in their major before graduation at nearby engineering/manufacturing companies who are eager to hire our students and graduates.

We also offer opportunities for world-class research experience and graduate study for those who want to change the world through a career in research and development.
