Small student/teacher ratio: With a student/teacher ratio of about 20:1, you'll get the individual attention you need. And all the engineering lectures and laboratories are taught by professors not graduate assistants.

The Capstone Design Project helps make TCU’s engineering program unique.


Each year, the senior class forms a company and signs a contract with a real customer to design and produce a product. It’s a real-world experience that you won’t find at most universities.


In addition, the clients – which have included Alcon Laboratories, Bell Helicopter, Textron, RockBit Industries, Lockheed Martin, and Defense Department Research sites, – really use the products. more >

Research opportunities: At TCU, you won't be sitting on the sidelines. You can work with your professors on research projects as early as your freshman year. That means you'll quickly gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge research fields, as well as learn how to co-author journal articles and present research at conferences and workshops.
