In the Elizabethtown School of Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science, we believe in cultivating a culture of belonging and academic excellence across disciplines, educating the whole person beyond the boundaries of the classroom, and preparing students for purposeful personal and professional success.
With our Etown Engineering motto of ‘Educate for Service, Engineer for Society,’ our student-centered undergraduate engineering education, and our emphasis on helping students find purposeful life-work, we share KEEN's mission to educate engineering students so they can create personal, economic, and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work.
Our mission is to prepare graduating students to successfully enter desired professional positions or graduate programs. This is achieved by challenging our students with a holistic education in engineering, the sciences, and the liberal arts. Located in central Pennsylvania, our programs are born of a sense of cooperation between professors and students, and between student peers. In this supportive environment, we guide students to become increasingly self-aware of their strengths and to develop teamwork and communication skills. While theoretical and applied competence is the bedrock of our students' competitiveness, students also develop distinctive traits of caring and collaboration to move the world toward peace, non-violence, human dignity and social justice.
Elizabethtown College’s engineering program is nationally ranked among its peers for its robust undergraduate education. Grounded in a 122-year tradition of learning to think critically, analyze deeply, and communicate effectively, Elizabethtown fosters creativity and innovation in our engineering students so they are equipped to identify problems and search for sustainable solutions that strengthen our communities. With a deep commitment to combining hands-on learning with real-world experience, becoming a KEEN Partner will enhance our ability to develop graduates who "engineer for society" to address and make powerful impacts on the greatest issues facing our world in the 21st century and beyond.
