Why choose TCNJ School of Engineering? Our school attracts students who are serious about their education, love learning, and are highly engaged in their pursuits. They are taught and mentored by a faculty that is equally passionate and committed—true teacher-scholars who foster collaboration, encourage ingenuity and inspire curiosity.

The Benefit of a Strong Liberal Arts Core

Our students are immersed in a comprehensive education that specializes in engineering, but is grounded in a liberal arts curriculum. That means our graduates have the distinct advantage of a broad, dimensional education that’s focused on their interests, while equipping them for a diversity of opportunities in the job market or further education.

An Emphasis on Innovation and Creativity

Our engineering programs focus on the importance of discovery and breaking new ground. Students flex their problem-solving skills in the classroom, in the lab, and in special projects and contests. We encourage entrepreneurship through competitions or as independent endeavors—and indeed several start-ups have been born at TCNJ.
