Engineering at Viterbo

Engineering turns science into reality through invention, innovation, and design. Engineers investigate how things work, find practical uses for scientific discoveries, and make science accessible to the rest of society. A degree in engineering will prepare students for a variety of lucrative career options.

We are working with local industry leaders to provide curriculum that establishes a solid foundation of engineering skills and develops communication and leadership skills, while keeping in mind the spirit of a liberal arts education and upholding Viterbo University's core values.
