    Every semester, labs are part of the curriculum. This gives students the opportunity to put information learned in classrooms to use immediately in their lab projects.
At The William States Lee College of Engineering, we believe in learning by doing, so all of our programs include a practical component. Freshmen design and build projects ranging from spring-powered cars, to computer chip circuits, to balsa wood bridges. Hands-on learning continues through the senior year, where students team up to tackle real-world industrial projects such as bomb-detecting robots and high-pressure piping systems for nuclear plants.

The success of the Lee College of Engineering is tied to our philosophy of teamwork and application. Starting from the freshman year, students participate in hands-on projects and activities. All undergraduate and graduate students work and learn with top faculty. Through the involvement of area businesses and industry professionals, students gain valuable real-world experience.   In addition, our location in one of the most dynamic urban cities in America provides you with unlimited opportunities that few universities can match.
