Residential College The Engineering Residential College (ERC) is a leading-edge learning community that helps to develop the next generation of engineers and construction managers, who will face the technical challenges of a global economy. The ERC is open to students declaring a major in engineering, construction management, or computer science, and who enroll in college trigonometry or calculus courses. The goal of the ERC is to jump-start your professional development by quickly acquainting you with the College of Engineering. The ERC is the hub for a series of activities and programs hosted by student chapters of professional engineering societies. In partnership with LSU Career Services, the ERC conducts training programs on résumé development and mock interviewing and hosts corporate-sponsored events aimed at exposing our students to internship, Co-Op, and long-term engineering career opportunities.

LSU IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY/ACCESS UNIVERSITY Produced by the LSU Office of Communications & University Relations 139-0003 • XXM • 2/12
Encounter Engineering in Europe or “E3” students visit the Reichstag in Berlin.
The Petroleum Engineering Research & Technology Transfer (PERTT) Laboratory is an industrial-scale facility with full-scale equipment and instrumentation for conducting training and research related to borehole technology. LSU is the only university in North America where future petroleum engineers can get hands-on training in well control by working at a full-scale well control research and training facility.
The LSU College of Engineering offers bachelor’s degrees in 11 majors: Biological Engineering – The biological engineering (BE) major is communication intensive and a logical field of study for medical school, biomedically oriented programs, and practice-oriented engineers. Chemical Engineering – Chemical engineering (ChE) serves as a foundation for a wide variety of career opportunities. ChE uses the principals of chemistry, physics, and biology with the design skills of an engineer to create new chemical and biochemical processes. Civil Engineering – Civil engineering (CE) produces well-rounded graduates prepared for fulfilling careers. In addition to offering bachelor’s degrees in CE, LSU also offers minors in environmental engineering, surveying, and structural engineering. Computer Engineering – Faculty and students conduct cutting-edge research in a number of computer engineering areas that make an impact on their respective disciplines.
The LSU College of Engineering does many things well, not the least of which is graduate more future professionals than any other engineering college in the state. Currently, more than half of Louisiana’s engineering and construction management graduates come from LSU. So, no matter the field of interest, the LSU College of Engineering will lay the foundation for your future career and, in doing so, help you transform lives.
Dr. Clinton S. Willson, associate professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, always puts students first. This is one of many reasons that last year he was named recipient of the Departmental Service Award. Dr. Willson believes that LSU’s geographical location gives students a wealth of opportunities.
LSU is home to students representing every state in the U.S. and more than 100 different countries.
Computer Science – Computer Science (CSC) is a rapidly evolving discipline,which affects many fields, including engineering, the arts, business, and many more. Construction Management – LSU’s construction management (CM) program equips students with the technical and management skills to ensure construction projects are completed on time and within budget. Electrical Engineering – Electrical engineers (EE) study fields of science and
mathematics that relate to the sensing, communicating, and processing of information as well as the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of the materials and the generation and transport of electrical energy. Environmental Engineering – The state of Louisiana, with economic activity from the Mississippi River, our unique coast and soil, the array of industry present here, and environmental challenges such as hurricanes and storm surge, provides a unique learning opportunity for environmental engineers (EVEG). Industrial Engineering – Industrial engineers (IE) design the systems of machines, materials, information, and people to produce products and services. From design of emergency rooms to design of the distribution system that supports the parcel industries, IEs are wellequipped to work in any type of industry. Mechanical Engineering – Mechanical engineering (ME) is about career opportunities and forming the ME leaders of tomorrow. The capstone design program of LSU ME emphasizes physical realization of prototypes, effective technical communication of all forms, and the interaction with industry through industry-sponsored projects. Petroleum Engineering– At LSU’s Craft & Hawkins Department of Petroleum Engineering (PETE), students are trained to provide the energy resources that the world consumes today and will need in the future, whether in petrochemical, geothermal, or the next energy discovery.
Admission Requirements LSU students must complete and/or attain the following before their application will be considered*: • A minimum of 24 hours earned of undergraduate credit • A minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) (2.8 GPA for PETE) • A “C” or better in Math 1550 (Calculus I) *Transfer students, please visit www.lsu.edu/transfer to learn more about your admission requirements.
Students use the engineering communication studio to assist them in learning to be effective communicators.
“Many of our engineering students have spent time at the boundaries of Louisiana’s built and natural environments through offshore work, construction jobs, working on farms, or fishing and hunting. This experience, combined with the strong fundamentals the LSU College of Engineering provides, gives them a valuable appreciation of the challenges we face as we design and build resilient infrastructure for the region and beyond.”

“I saw the opportunities I’d have with travel, salary, and the ability to enter the workforce with a bachelor’s degree. I will be interning in Denver, Colorado, this summer and I am so excited for this and all of the opportunities I’ve received from the College of Engineering.”
Senior design projects teach collaboration with industry to reach a solution and then stress teamwork to bring it to life.
Showing Class Across all LSU engineering and construction management curricula, the Senior Capstone Design Experience presents students with real-world challenges and experiences to develop practical solutions, which enable them for the best possible preparation for entering the competitive workforce.
