In the past eighty years, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s College of Engineering, founded in 1940, has evolved to a prominent top performing educational and research-oriented college with brilliant students, exceptional graduate and renowned faculty who develop state of the art knowledge in engineering and technology.

Graduates from our engineering programs are highly sought after by industry because of their solid education and reputation as high-performing achievers. We have very impressive alumni, some of which can be seen on our “Alumni Wall of Honor.”

Our Ragin’ Cajun spirit, collaborations and partnerships across disciplines and with industry dramatically extends our reach, impressive contributions and significant impact not only in Louisiana but worldwide. However, that is just the beginning; our narrative of success is still young. Our future has great promise and new chapters are being written every day.
