Engineering and Mathematics

Engineering and mathematics gives students the opportunity to become innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our world both today and into the future.

STEM jobs are projected to increase by 9% over the next 10 years—and even more in the La Crosse area.

Engineering and mathematics degrees at Viterbo University develop communication, leadership, team-building, and problem-solving skills. Viterbo offers engineering and mathematics as part of an education in the liberal arts tradition that develops technical skills along with independent thinking and decision-making skills, preparing graduates for exciting and meaningful careers.

Program Information

All engineering and mathematics students enjoy opportunities to participate in internships with local companies and/or research opportunities with faculty. Our engineering classes are offered in a brand new state-of-the-art inventor workshop where students are invited to create, critique, and craft solutions to real world problems. Mathematics pushes students to think creatively with coursework that emphasizes the problem-solving and critical thinking needed to develop the tools with which to solve complex problems. Engineering and mathematics courses include access to industry-standard software for simulations and processing and analyzing data.

Engineering (B.S.)

Viterbo’s engineering program was created in response to the need for engineers and at the request of employers. We work with local industry leaders to provide technical curriculum that establishes a solid foundation of engineering skills while developing students’ communication and leadership skills through a liberal arts education and Viterbo University’s core values.

Engineering (Minor)

Minors at Viterbo University generally require between 15–25 credits upon completion. Transfer course and waivers and/or substitutions could modify these credit totals.

Mathematics (B.S.)

Applied mathematics and analytics majors create solutions to complex real-world problems through a mathematical approach. Students build a theoretical foundation of mathematics, apply programming strategies to analyze and visualize data, and create predictive models to aid in decision-making through course-embedded projects. These course-embedded projects hone critical thinking skills, and provide students with invaluable teamwork, communication, and networking opportunities that employers seek.
