College of Engineering


UToledo — one of Ohio's top engineering programs

Earn a patent, start a business, conduct research — as an undergraduate.

Our College of Engineering stands out from other universities. We are one of only eight programs in the U.S. that requires co-ops for engineering science undergraduates. Our students graduate with a year’s worth of paid industry experience. Many find jobs before they graduate.

All of our bachelor's degrees are accredited by ABET. We also offer traditional engineering master’s degree and Ph.D. programs, as well as graduate certificates and a part-time online master’s program for working professionals.

At UToledo, you’re directly admitted to your engineering major. No weeding out. No pre-engineering. You’ll start engineering classes and design work your freshman year. Our focus is on experiential education and entrepreneurship. We prepare you to be a practicing engineer and leader in the field.

Experiential Learning

You learn best by doing. That’s why we require three co-ops. You’ll also sharpen your skills and apply your classroom knowledge with freshman and senior design experiences and through our engineering student organizations. All of this hands-on experience gives you an advantage over other job applicants when you’re ready to launch your career.

Co-ops and Careers

World-class research

There aren’t many universities where you can work on research starting your freshman year. Our renowned engineering faculty welcome undergraduate and graduate students into their labs. Their cutting-edge research in areas from sustainable energy to cybersecurity makes an impact in Toledo and throughout the world.




Meet Grace Snider

"GEARSET was a great opportunity for me to achieve a degree in engineering even though I wasn't directly accepted into engineering,” Snider said. “It allows students who didn't directly make it into the college of engineering to prepare for admittance into the College of Engineering a semester after you start school. This was a super important experience during my time at UToledo because, instead of potentially adding multiple semesters to my degree, I was able to jump right into an engineering degree my second semester."

Meet Branigan Lyczkowski

“There are so many people who have helped me throughout these past 4 1/2 years grow to become a well-rounded leader, engineer and student, but Dean Toole and Dr. Pawlecki have been influential mentors for me at UToledo. They continuously presented me with opportunities that allowed me to develop myself and achieve my goals. They have always been there to answer my questions, connect me with any and all necessary resources and send positive encouragement."

Meet Rieko Scheib

Between coursework, student organizations, and volunteering, Scheib has at times struggled with finding the proper balance for everything happening in her life. “I am very career driven, so I am very go go go. It has been difficult but I have a great support network. That is one thing I really appreciate about UToledo: They gave me the system where I can do all of these things and be a part of everything without feeling too overwhelmed.”

Meet Dakota, Drew, and Dillon Tocco

"The engineering program at the school is unmatched. The co-op program not only prepares you for full-time employment but increases your chances of being hired right out of school. Professors like Dr. (Raghav) Khanna, Dr. (Roger) King, and Dr. (William) Evans have also had a great impact on my career and success at The University of Toledo."

Meet Nasrin Taheri

"I became interested in my brothers’ experiences with the graduate program at UToledo and how happy they were working in Dr. Elahinia’s lab. Following my brother’s advice, I applied for the Ph.D. program at UToledo and now have the chance to work on my Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. Elahinia, a pioneer in the field of shape memory materials. At UToledo, I’m working with cutting-edge research facilities in the field of advanced manufacturing, and I am extremely excited to explore new opportunities in this field."
