Get to Know the Russ College
Engineers, technologists and aviators much prefer the doing to the talking. The Russ College of Engineering and Technology offers a forward-thinking, experience-centered learning environment where technical expertise and collaboration produce ideas for the future. At Russ, we discover ways to make a sustainable mark on the world. By emphasizing soft skill development alongside technical practice, our students gain the know-how to solve real-world problems — creating jobs opportunities from the moment they graduate.
At the Russ College, you’ll be part of a rigorous academic and research community based on the principles of mathematics and science. We look at the holistic record of well-rounded students with ambition. For engineering disciplines and computer science, our typical first-years rank in the top 30 to 50 percent of their high school graduating classes, with four years of math, a year of chemistry and a year of physics; and a minimum score of 23 on the ACT or combined 1160 on the SAT.
