Campbell’s School of Engineering launched its charter freshman class in fall 2016. With an innovative hands-on, project-based freshman curriculum and a high degree of student-faculty interaction, Campbell offers a broad, interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science in Engineering with concentrations in mechanical engineering and chemical/pharmaceutical engineering.
Graduates of Campbell will be highly employable in a variety of industries or equipped to pursue advanced study. With Campbell’s location in the Research Triangle Region, students can enjoy a variety internship and research opportunities. Majors can also participate in strong student professional organizations and service activities.
“With its location in the Research Triangle Region, its strong programs and facilities in the health sciences and pharmacy, and its personalized approach to education, Campbell is the ideal place to create an innovative, nationally-recognized engineering program to train the engineering leaders of tomorrow.”

Dean, School of Engineering,
Engineers solve the grand challenges facing our world today, designing everything from better medicines to cleaner, more efficient sources of energy. They use creativity and innovation to make the world a better place.
50-80% of job growth in the U.S. is dependent on scientists and engineers, but we aren’t producing enough to meet workforce needs. We need a diverse range of students to pursue engineering. Diversity drives innovation and success. Engineering drives our national economy and maintains our competitive edge.
The unemployment rate for engineers is just 2%. Overall employment growth for engineers will increase by 11% by 2018. More than half of engineers work in medicine, law, finance, and consulting.
Engineering students can participate in industrial internship experiences or summer research programs in the region or across the country. They also have the opportunity to engage with professional organizations and service learning opportunities.
Campbell University is located in the fastest-growing micropolitan area in the nation: Harnett County, which provides students an ideal environment to form friendships and focus on academics.
At the same time, Campbell is in the prestigious Research Triangle Region. This hub offers a strategic advantage for engineering students seeking experiential learning, employment, and networking opportunities.
Campbell’s engineering students will have access to the university’s professional schools, including its world-renowned College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, School of Osteopathic Medicine, and School of Business.
Cross-disciplinary and inter-professional opportunities will allow engineering students to graduate as well-rounded, complex problem-solvers that are highly competitive for the workforce.
Like Campbell’s other academic programs, the engineering school’s curriculum and pedagogy will be grounded in teaching from a Christian worldview and in blending theoretical and practical education.
With the real-world, hands-on training they experience, engineering students will graduate ready to make an immediate impact in the workforce.
