This is a great time to be considering a career in engineering,
and Saint Martin’s is a great place to earn your degree. More than
1,300 Saint Martin’s engineering graduates have gone on to work on
industrial and civil engineering projects in state and local
government agencies, as well as nationally and internationally.
Approximately 50 Saint Martin’s Engineering alumni work at the Puget
Sound Naval Shipyard, and many others work as city engineers or for
the Washington State Department of Transportation. Several Saint
Martin’s graduates have founded or lead regional, national and
international engineering companies. Furthermore, our faculty
members have received numerous national and regional awards and
The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering is experiencing a
sense of renewal; we’ve recently moved into our new engineering
building, Cebula Hall, the highest scored Platinum LEED building in
the Western Hemisphere; we’ve started plans for a new industrial lab
building; we’ve revised our curriculum to better prepare our
graduates to face the challenges of the 21st century; we’ve
established a study abroad program; we’ve developed seamless 5 year
programs enabling students to graduate in 5 years with their
undergraduate and graduate degrees; and, we are now offering
graduate assistantships to well-qualified students.
Society needs engineers; whether it is to treat water so you can
drink it, improve upon the infrastructure that we use every day,
create robots, or design new bio-medical devices that can change the
way we treat the sick, engineers play an important role. They are
the unsung heroes of society. There has never been a better time to
study engineering than now, especially at Saint Martin’s University.
I hope to see you here soon.
