Job potential

Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 10.5% increase in STEM jobs

Program Overview

There is a dire need for engineers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 1,800 openings for chemical engineers annually. Wisconsin has the fourth-highest concentration of industrial engineer jobs in the U.S., with an especially high need in counties within driving distance of CUW’s Mequon campus.

To help meet this need, while drawing on our strengths in chemistry, math, physics and pharmacy, Concordia is offering a new bachelor of science in engineering. Both chemical and industrial engineering are coming fall of 2024. 

CUW’s engineering programs are distinct in the marketplace because they are anchored in the liberal arts and designed to prepare engineers through a Lutheran-Christian worldview. As you hone your science, math, and technology skills for success in your vocation, you will also deepen your people and critical-thinking abilities to solve problems and contribute to a better world.

What to Expect

Our bachelor's in industrial and chemical engineering will prepare you to be a Christ-centered engineer who will help build safer and more efficient workplaces in the engineering industry. Our program, will prepare you to enter the workforce as engineers, industrial engineers, production managers health and safety engineers, pharmaceutical biologics engineers, and so many more in-demand professions.
