General Engineering at Muskingum University is an innovative and integrated engineering program grounded in the liberal arts tradition. It gives you the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to compete for engineering positions in industry or to gain acceptance into a graduate program for further education. Muskingum engineers are prepared to positively impact society and humankind.

Our program starts with a broad background in physics and builds on this foundation with aspects of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computational science, and material science.



  • Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
  • Small student-to-faculty ratio
  • Hands-on laboratory experience in most courses
  • Focus on interdisciplinary program solving of real-life engineering problems
  • Implementation of engineering design and computational science across the curriculum
  • Incorporation of latest software tools and hardware (MATLAB, SolidWorks, 3D printing)
