WKU engineering students master engineering by working on projects. From the very beginning of our programs, WKU Engineering has embraced project-based learning as our primary approach to engaged deep learning.
Our engineering students do plenty of homework problems, and they take plenty of quizzes and exams, but they learn to be engineers by applying their textbook learning to complex projects-by doing their work as students the way real engineers do their work.
They work on projects at every level in their program of study, from line-following robots and wobbling steam engine models in their first engineering classes, to industrially-sponsored projects and national and regional competitions in their capstone classes. Through these powerful educational experiences, WKU engineers not only master technical skills and knowledge, but they also acquire and hone professional skills such as teamwork, communication, and ethical professional behavior.
