Viterbo’s engineering program was created in response to the need for engineers and at the request of employers. We work with local industry leaders to provide technical curriculum that establishes a solid foundation of engineering skills while developing students’ communication and leadership skills through a liberal arts education and Viterbo University’s core values.
