St. Ambrose University offers two engineering programs:

The Industrial Engineering degree program prepares students to plan, design and supervise the installation of operational systems. Industrial engineers enjoy careers in industry, business, government, education, health care and the military, working in production, marketing, procurement, personnel and product design.

Mechanical Engineering is the broadest discipline in engineering and utilizes a combination of human, material and economic resources to provide solutions to problems faced in society. As an applied science, mechanical engineering is focused on the design, development, manufacture, management and control of engineering systems.
