Educate for Service. Engineer for Society.
What if you could change the world? What if you could solve the problems of tomorrow, today? If you’re curious, enjoy problem solving, and see a world filled with possibility, engineering at E-town might be a good fit for you.
Engineers are a lot of things: creative problem solvers, innovators, and dreamers to name a few. While creativity and engineering might not seem like they go together, engineers are at the core of new developments making a difference for people all over the world. From designing machines that allow the deaf to hear, to designing cars that drive more safely or protecting the water supply, engineers are constantly putting big ideas into action.
All of our engineering students complete at least one real-world project for a community client, and have other opportunities to impact society. We partner on engineering projects with local non-profits, students in developing nations in Africa, the Center for Civic and Community Engagement, and the Social Enterprise Institute.
Jake Evans, Buck Kauffman, and David Good created a prototype vest to help in the physical therapy of a 3-year-old boy with Cerebral Palsy.
At Elizabethtown, we have a small student body taught by eight professors, plus two adjunct faculty with a wealth of professional experience, a full-time physics research scientist, and a full-time fabrication technician. This allows you to have personal attention in the classroom and on projects to ensure you understand the material.
Our BS Engineering and BS Computer Engineering degrees are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Students who graduate from our accredited programs have access to enhanced opportunities in employment; licensure, registration and certification; graduate education and global mobility. An accredited degree gives you the flexibility to take your career across the country, or across the world.

Paul Lecurieux-Lafayette '18
The international student from France completed a high profile internship this summer with Stanley MOrgan, opening his eyes to further interests.
Internships confirm career paths, shed light on other possibilities and, from time to time, help students consider alternate paths. Paul Lecurieux-Lafayette’s summer internship offered some of each. Majoring in industrial engineering management and minoring in business administration and data analytics, Lecurieux-Lafayette landed a premier position with Morgan Stanley in Baltimore, Maryland. He worked on group projects with other interns, helped improve processes and participated in training and leadership events. He learned a lot about himself and the company and also learned the value of networking. It was a referral from an E-town alum that helped him secure the spot, after all. “If you don’t do an internship, you don’t have exposure to the work world or senior leadership. I recommend it to all students.”
Our focus is on mentoring, coaching, and guiding our students to not only succeed in making a living, but also in living fulfilling lives. Regardless of career path, Elizabethtown engineers are passionate about making the world a better place and doing work that will shape the future.
Our majors who enter the workforce immediately upon graduation have been hired by world-class companies such as Intel, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Goodyear, Raytheon, Google, Phoenix Contact, Armstrong, Johns Hopkins, Bechtel, and the NSA.
Each year, several of our graduates enroll in full-time Ph.D. and Masters programs in Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Civil Engineering. Recent graduates have entered programs at schools like:
Recent graduates have also worked in finance and continued their studies in law at U Penn.
