Engineering Major

School of Arts and Sciences

Engineering real impact – for your career & for the world.

As a branch of science and technology, the Bachelor of Science in General Engineering deals with the design, building, maintenance and use of engines, machines, and structures. Engineering majors combine creativity with hands-on skills to turn designs and models into working devices – all for the purpose of meeting real needs in society.

What makes engineering at Concordia University Irvine unique from other universities? At CUI, we’re interested in training a different type of engineer.

Shifting gears

Engineers with broad training for the 21st century.

You may wonder why our major is in General Engineering, and not a more specialized degree like Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering. Rather than focusing on narrow specializations, we believe in equipping you with a broad education that gives you a solid foundation for your future and allows you to continually build on your skills. This gives you the flexibility to adapt to the evolving fields within engineering…or even if you end up deciding on a different career path.

An open book

Engineers who take an interdisciplinary approach to learning and leading.

You will first encounter what we mean by cross-disciplinary thinking in our distinctive general education, called Enduring Questions & Ideas. As you wrestle with these “Great Questions,” you’ll start to make connections not only within the field of engineering, but also across different subject matters and with your own callings in life. It’s this type of curiosity, testing, problem solving, and inventing that is at the heart of the scientific method, and it’s the type of engineer who we believe is best prepared to lead and thrive in a complex world.

Helping hands

Engineers who are engaged in service to others.

Engineers have the unique opportunity to positively and significantly impact the quality of human life – whether that’s in major urban and suburban areas or the remotest towns and villages of the planet. As a Lutheran university, we take seriously our callings to love and serve our neighbors. Guided by Christian faculty, you will experience an emphasis on moral integrity and service to others throughout not only your classes but in entrepreneurial engineering activities that take place outside of the classroom.
