College of Arts and Sciences


Location: Crete
Degree Type: 

Personal attention meets practical opportunities in our four-year program specifically designed to give you an edge in the engineering industry. Doane engineering students focus on practice-based learning, which gives you more opportunities to apply classroom knowledge to solving real-world problems. All while working with experienced faculty who care about your success.

Develop a firm understanding in science and math, and complement that foundation with the practical skills necessary to find solutions. Our curriculum gives students hands-on experience applying engineering principles to real problems from introductory courses through the senior research and engineering design courses. We teach our students to develop critical-thinking strategies. And we emphasize project management and quality control techniques that are widely used in many areas of industry and commerce.

Access the Doane Engineering Idea Lab for coursework or your own personal projects. Our program encourages the entrepreneurial spirit and produces ethical  problem-solvers, no matter what path they choose after graduation.

Society of Physics Students

The purpose of the Society of Physics Students is the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of physics, the encouragement of interest in physics throughout the academic and local communities, and the introduction of students to the professional community. The Society of Physics Students is a national organization for any college student interested in physics. The Doane University chapter is open to students of any major. Chapter activities seek to help students become contributing members of a professional community.

In addition to the Engineering major, Doane also offers other ways of entering the engineering profession.

Engineering Physics Major
This major incorporates fundamental physics knowledge with engineering applications.

Dual Degree Engineering Program
This program allows a student to earn a bachelor's degree from Doane in a major such as physics and a bachelor's of science in an engineering discipline in five years of study. Typically, students spend three years at Doane and then complete the degree with two years of work at an engineering school.

The Doane Difference

Doane Engineering students have the ability to focus on practice-based learning, particularly through service projects, which allows them more opportunities to apply classroom knowledge to solving problems in the real world.

Our students have the luxury of working one-on-one with experienced faculty who care about each student's individual success in the program. A sense of community between the different disciplines creates an intentional, strong career network.

Not only do Doane students have advantages in the classroom, but they also have a plethora of other activities that they can be involved in, including athletics, theatre, music, student organizations, Greek life, and more.

Right From the Start
At Doane, not only do engineering students qualify for the 4-year graduation guarantee, they also don't need to wait until their third or fourth year to begin applying their knowledge. Students here begin conducting scientific experiments or engineering design projects their first semester on campus.

Success Story

Doane has been awesome about helping me with my schedule so I can focus my energy on all of my interests.
