Why Study Engineering?
Schreiner University’s mission is to prepare students for meaningful work and purposeful lives in a changing global society. Engineering is a great choice for students who enjoy math and science, and who want to design the solutions to real world problems.
Mechanical Engineers design almost everything that moves. Most machines, vehicles, devices, and components had a mechanical engineer determine what material to build with, what size and shape to make it, and how to connect all the pieces. Mechanical engineers also work with thermodynamic and fluid systems including aerodynamics, pipelines, and all types of powerplants.
Civil Engineers create and maintain the infrastructure that surrounds us. Architectural and Structural engineers design buildings and bridges. Geotechnical engineers work on foundations and other underground structures. Transportation engineers design roads, airports, and rail and subway systems. Environmental engineers consider the impact of our work on air, water, and ground pollution.
Schreiner Engineering Advantages
Schreiner offers personal attention in a familial atmosphere allowing you to receive the customized education you need to reach your goals. No classes are taught by graduate students or teaching assistants. You will have direct access to your professors, who are all dedicated to undergraduate education.
You will start with a foundation in the liberal arts, develop tools in math and science, and complete hands-on engineering coursework, research projects, senior design projects, and design competitions. We encourage interdisciplinary work and many students earn minors in Computer Science, Management, Chemistry or any other field that would support your interests.
Schreiner Engineering graduates enter the public and private workforce, go to graduate school for engineering and business, and serve in the military as commissioned officers. Some companies that have hired our recent graduates include:
- Allpoints Surveying
- Bell Helicopter
- Clark Associates
- Lockheed Martin
- Schneider Engineering
- Texas Department of Transportation
- Welltec Inc
Engineering Bachelor’s Degree at Schreiner University
Schreiner University offers a Bachelor of Science degree program with a major in Engineering. Our program includes two distinct tracks:
- Mechanical Engineering Track: This track is tailored to prepare students for careers in Aerospace, Biomedical, Industrial, or Mechanical Engineering. View Engineering – Mechanical Track
- Civil Engineering Track: Students who choose this track will gain the skills necessary for careers in Architectural, Civil, and Environmental Engineering. View Engineering – Civil Track
Specialized Career Paths:
- Chemical Engineering: Students aspiring to pursue Chemical Engineering can opt for either the Engineering Mechanical Track or the Chemistry Integrative Track as their major. They should also consider minoring in the other discipline to establish a strong foundation.
- Petroleum Engineering: Those interested in Petroleum Engineering have several options. They can major in either of the two Engineering Tracks (Mechanical or Civil) and complement their studies with a minor in Chemistry. Alternatively, they can major in the Chemistry Integrative Track and minor in Engineering to prepare for a career in this field.
- Computer-Related Engineering Fields:* If your passion lies in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or Software Engineering, consider majoring in Computer Information Technology or the Engineering Mechanical Track. To broaden your expertise, earn a minor in the complementary field. After graduation, you may want to explore pursuing a master’s degree in your chosen field.

STEMZONE – a new facility focused on STEM academic support programming. Open to students 24/7, this facility houses common space for STEM majors and access to course-based manipulatives and software as well as a computer lab. The programming from STEMZONE include STEM Success Coaches, Professional Academic Tutors, peer tutors facilitated from the Center for Teaching and Learning, and “Just In Time” workshops to address student academic needs.
Killdeer Engineering Lab (Under Construction) – as the newest laboratory at Schreiner University, the Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing (KMM) lab space sits just 5 miles from the main campus and provides an array of new equipment for students on both the mechanical and civil engineering tracks. The KMM lab also supports Schreiner’s Engineering-focused student organizations. Construction is expected to finish by the end of the Fall 2023 semester.
The Engineering program provides an interdisciplinary education grounded in scientific reasoning, problem-solving, and skills development enriched with research opportunities and experiential learning that prepares students for career success furthered by life-long learning.
Program Educational Objectives
Within a few years after graduating, students will:
- Collaborate on teams, work in a variety of public and private fields, and seek career advancement in their workplace or leadership opportunities in professional organizations or community groups.
- Contribute to the engineering profession, a changing global society, and their local communities through ethical application of technical, mathematical, scientific, and communication skills.
- Pursue lifelong learning through licensure, advanced educational pursuits, and/or professional development to stay abreast of global advancements in engineering methods, tools, and technologies.
Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering.
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Schreiner Engineering is currently pursuing Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accreditation through the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC). Please contact Dr. Brian Bernard at email@example.com for questions or updates on our progress and expected timeline.
