College of Arts and Sciences
Degree Type: Undergraduate
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.
Doane University's Bachelor's degree program in Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.
Students are able to participate in authentic design experiences throughout our engineering program. In addition to our senior design capstone project sequence, students also engage in semester-long projects throughout the program. With small class sizes, even many of our regular classes include projects focused on solving real-world problems as a team. These projects give students the experience and skills needed to be successful after graduation.
Cutting Edge Undergraduate Research
Our undergraduates have the opportunity to work side-by-side with Doane faculty on research projects. Students gain valuable lab experience that puts them ahead in their career and also prepares them for graduate school. Doane has many funded opportunities such as the INBRE Scholar Program for students interested in biomedical research, the LSAMP research program to support under-represented students, and the NSF-funded IRES program where students can conduct summer research in Germany.
Whether you’re ready to apply or still testing the waters with a tour, we’re here for you. Here are some helpful links to assist you on your journey.
A focus on practice-based learning, particularly through service projects, allows students more opportunities to apply classroom knowledge to solving problems in the real world.
Work one-on-one with experienced faculty who care about each student's individual success in the program.
Students are actively involved outside the classroom which enriches their educational experience and develops them into a well-rounded leader.

I was searching for a school where I could pursue both my passion for engineering and soccer.
Dual Degree Engineering Program
In addition to Doane’s BS in Engineering major, the dual degree program allows a student to pursue special admission to discipline-specific engineering degrees at our affiliated institutions. Typically, students spend 3 years at Doane and 2 years at either Washington University in St. Louis or Columbia University to earn two bachelor’s degrees. Students can also add one more year to also add a master’s degree at WashU in a 3-3 option. For more details, visit WashU’s Dual Degree Program or Columbia’s Combined Plan.
