Beyond the Classroom
Yes, you'll study with great professors and take challenging courses, but you just might learn the most about yourself through the many programs we have available to you outside the classroom.
Become a peer advisor, lead a student organization, take on an internship at a Silicon Valley industry leader, help the SCU team design and build a solar-powered Tiny House for competition, inspire the next generation of engineering undergrads through K-12 outreach... Whatever sparks your interest, opportunities abound for you here.
