“The economic future of the Tri-State region will require a continuing supply of exceptional engineers and computer scientists to meet the increasingly complex needs of regional manufacturers and other important employers,” ~Joe Tracy, CEO of Dot Family Holdings and a member of the Quincy University Board of Trustees.



Quincy University has announced the launch of Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering major degree programs, which will prepare students to become engineers in such fields as automation, autonomous systems, computer assisted design, electronics testing and manufacturing, and artificial intelligence. Both engineering programs will begin at QU in Fall 2024.

Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering are two of the foundational engineering disciplines and, nationwide, often are the two engineering majors most popular with students. At Quincy University, the Electrical Engineering program will prepare students to design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical and electronic equipment. The Mechanical Engineering program will prepare students to design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices, including tools, engines, and machines.





QU’s engineering programs will focus on innovation and improvement in student outcomes required by ABET, the specialized accreditor for many programs in engineering, computing, and the sciences. Both degrees in the engineering program will require courses in physics, mathematics, and other subjects already taught at QU, along with newly developed engineering courses.

QU will work to develop pre-engineering relationships with regional high schools and to create summer camp opportunities for engineering students. These engineering degree programs will also give QU the ability to offer continuing education units for engineers in the region.

Development of new engineering programs at Quincy University is possible in part thanks to philanthropic support, which will allow QU to help meet automation and other vital engineering needs of regional industries.

Effective immediately, students interested in the new engineering majors are invited to complete some of the prerequisite courses by enrolling at QU. For more information, contact the Office of Admissions at admissions@quincy.edu.
