About the Program

Sweet Briar College’s all-women engineering program is ideal both for students who are unsure of their capabilities and require more one-on-one with faculty in small classrooms as well as those who clearly want to become engineers.

Employers of our students value their self-confidence, self-efficacy, and pro-activity as well as technical proficiency in both mechanical and electrical engineering. They are equally well-prepared for graduate-level work in many engineering specializations.

Our program is ABET accredited, meaning our graduates leave with the right credentials to enter the engineering profession.

We have well-appointed facilities to ensure a hands-on learning experience.
