Case School of Engineering

think : engineering

At Case Western Reserve University’s Case School of Engineering, students think, design and create like bona fide engineers right out of the gate. With their combination of theoretical understanding and technical mastery, CWRU engineering students enter top-tier graduate programs and launch high-velocity careers. It's no wonder the Case School of Engineering is consistently named among the top in the nation.

Do Engineering

  • 14 majors
  • #12 biomedical engineering program in the nation
  • 25 hands-on design courses available in the first semester
  • $20,000+ average co-op salary (that's for seven months of work)
  • Opportunities to compete in national innovation competitions (CWRU engineers regularly take top honors)
  • Bring ideas to life in Sears think[box], the inventor’s playground that fuses research, design and business strategy (not to mention super-high-tech equipment) under one roof

Live Engineering

With companies like IBM, Deloitte and General Electric in town and in need of creative, tech-savvy talent, Case Western Reserve students are on the top of the list for managers looking to hire for internships, co-ops and jobs.

For future biomedical engineers, there is perhaps no better city in America than Cleveland. BME students take full advantage of learning in one of the nation’s most sophisticated health care cities, as they land research and volunteer gigs in campus labs, at the CWRU School of Medicine and at any of the three major medical institutions within one mile of campus.

Love Engineering

It’s little surprise that with the engineering theory and experiences afforded to them, CWRU engineering students graduate in high demand.

Within three months of graduation, 90 percent of recent Case Western Reserve engineering graduates were enrolled in graduate or professional school, had accepted full-time employment (often with the companies where they completed a co-op), or were pursuing personal or professional goals, like community service or travel.
