About the School

Whether it’s bringing solar-powered lights to classrooms in Ghana, treating post-traumatic stress disorder with virtual reality, delivering life-saving medicines to rural hospitals via drone, or designing houses that create more energy than they consume: most of the solutions that change the world come from engineers, and some of the best engineers in the world come from SCU's School of Engineering.

In the classroom and beyond, SCU offers courses, interdisciplinary projects, competitions, and a myriad of opportunities for students to tackle real problems here at home and around the world. Their students put into action their technical expertise as well as business and social skills, empathy, and the ethical discernment that can lead to a sustainable future for all.

Partnership With Makers4Good

SCU Engineering is developing a Mobile Maker Lab equipped with 3D Printers, a laser cutter, and other Maker tools with the goal of bringing the Maker Movement into communities and educational institutions where kids and young adults already spend their days. In concert with the physical trailer, SCU Engineering is developing a set of educational curricula to make optimal use of the resources the trailer provides.

SCU Mobile Maker Lab: A mobile lab that will bring the Maker Movement to kids and young adults.
