Small classes. Big opportunities.
At Santa Clara we focus on you.
You are not just a face in the crowd. You’ll work collaboratively with other students in the classroom, in the lab, and in the world. Your professors will help you map out your coursework, make decisions about study abroad and Silicon Valley internships, and guide you as you put learning to practice in your senior design project.
Our Jesuit values set us apart too. We teach you to consider the greater impact of your ideas. We emphasize service to community and strive to develop engineers who are compassionate leaders. The future of innovation and technology is in the hands of engineers. What would you like to do?

"Using algae as a model photosynthetic system, I've been working on how to trigger unidirectional ionic flux through the cell to create electrical current from sunlight in a completely biological system."
