Since its founding in 1885, the University of Arizona has stood as a national leader in practical education that helps students achieve incredible things. As one of the premier engineering schools in the country, our mission is to graduate students who are sought after by employers and prepared to embark on engaging, fulfilling careers.

Equipped with skills, knowledge, experience, and the entrepreneurial spirit they gain at the UA, our students become highly skilled members of society who lead with determination, innovate without limits and benefit our state, our nation, and the world in boundless ways.
