"Our mission is to provide a modern, high-quality educational experience for all students
in order to graduate engineers and scientists who are technically competent, creative, literate, ethically informed, and socially aware."
What We're About
When a river is polluted, who cleans it up? Who creates the trajectories that get a spaceship into space - and back to earth? And who refines petroleum into consumer products such as oil, gasoline, and plastics?
The answer, of course, is engineers and scientists, the men and women who expand our base of knowledge - and find solutions to our problems.
The curriculum in the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences at The University of Tulsa encourages the development of problem-solving skills that require imagination and ingenuity.
A World of Options
As a student in the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences, you will take supporting courses from most of the nine departments within the college, allowing you to examine different areas of study, become acquainted with professors and their research, and talk with industry professionals before deciding on a major.
The college has diversified programs in applied mathematics, biological science, chemical engineering, chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering physics, geosciences, mechanical engineering, and petroleum engineering.
Undergraduates are often involved in the most intriguing research, ranging from modeling the flight path of a volleyball to analyzing hair to detect the presence of heavy metals in drinking water.
As an undergraduate, possibly as early as your freshman year, you will get the chance to participate in sophisticated research projects - hands-on, participatory learning experiences - that will stand out on your resume. Thus, you will have access to the same equipment that our faculty and graduate students rely on to conduct their research. And you will be guided by dedicated faculty members who bring added prestige to the college through both their research and their presence on national committees. The college conducts research that is vital to the energy industry, and the Center for Environmental Research and Technology addresses society's concern for the quality of life and protection of the environment.
Students attend classes in Keplinger Hall, a $15-million facility equipped with labs for research in robotics, optics, polymers, nuclear physics, and more. It also houses lecture rooms, faculty offices, and study areas.
