Our highly trained faculty are a valuable asset to Idaho’s public and private sectors. Their vast expertise includes a wide range of disciplines, like microelectronics, material science, environmental engineering, to name only a few. Faculty members are instrumental in obtaining substantial grants and gifts from industry for equipment to support both introductory and advanced studies in microelectronics, integrated design, device mechanics, robotics, fluid mechanics, and soil mechanics….
The graduate and undergraduate curriculums are designed to integrate the needs of students with those of local industry and governmental agencies. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in internships during their college career. These internships, which provide university credit, can be in the form of part time employment during the school year or full-/part-time employment during the summer.
The success of our programs relies heavily on five major entities:
- dedicated students who are motivated by the desire to succeed and who demand quality education
- faculty who have come to BSU with a wide range and variety of industry and academic experience and the desire to teach and conduct research
- an administration which places a high value on quality education and scholarly activity
- advisory boards from industry which provide invaluable support and guidance
- Idaho taxpayers who recognize both the value and cost of high quality, professional education
