AT THE CORNER OF DISCOVERY AND INNOVATION
Discovery and innovation are the cornerstones of an engineering education at the Opus College of Engineering. During their time here, students have opportunities to work hand-in-hand with faculty who are pushing the research frontiers in their fields — taking what's learned in the classroom and transforming it into practical application for the benefit of society.
