The School of Engineering maintains direct relations with area industries and manufacturers. These open lines of communication encourage the flow of information and support that keeps the engineering curriculum current and relevant to the environment in industry. These contacts are particularly useful to students in the senior project course where they tackle real-life engineering problems encountered by practicing engineers and become involved in the mainstream of engineering activity.
Engineering students at Fairfield University may join the Engineering Student Society, an umbrella organization that embraces student chapters of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and the Society of Women Engineers. Students are encouraged to join ESS and profit from events sponsored by the chapters.
The School of Engineering Advisory Board demonstrate knowledge, leadership, and professional experience in a particular field.
