Even with your head in the clouds, we want you to be hands-on. In fact, the vast majority of our students participate in some kind of experiential learning activity, from co-ops and studying abroad to research. Interested students can get involved in research beginning their first year on campus, with many students publishing in peer-reviewed journals before they graduate. Join a faculty research lab exploring the principles of combustion in microgravity environments, or use lasers and ultrasound to master the principles of fluid dynamics. Join a student group like the Rocket Team to build aircraft that launch payloads into the stratosphere.
Plus, with our 50,000-square-foot makers paradise Sears think[box], you can bring your own dreams to life with access to all the designing and prototyping equipment you could imagine (from waterjet cutters to welding equipment, 3-D printers, laser cutters and more) as well as all the business and entrepreneurship guidance needed to send your ideas into orbit.
Plus, Cleveland is the place for engineers. Home to engineering Fortune 500 companies like Parker-Hannifin and renowned institutions like NASA Glenn, as well as startups rolling out of the university’s Technology Transfer efforts, opportunities abound for internships, co-ops and employment.
Our students go on to work at places like NASA, Parker-Hannifin, SpaceX and GE Aviation as well as advancing to earn their master’s or PhD.
