The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering
mission of The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering is to provide
our graduates with an education that will prepare them for successful
careers in engineering practice and serve as preparation for advanced
graduate studies and for lifelong learning.
Our guiding philosophy is to provide both a strong fundamental
liberal education and a strong engineering education. The liberal arts
portion of the program emphasizes ethical values, problem-solving skills
and service to society, and is administered in a supportive environment.
The professional portion of the program is student-engineer centered,
recognizing, supporting and developing the unique strengths and
capabilities of each individual. Additionally, the engineer’s role in
the team, in the company and in society is a common thread that lends
cohesion to the programs. The Engineering Advisory Board is a voluntary
group of practicing professionals who help guide Saint Martin’s Hal and
Inge Marcus School of Engineering. These practicing engineers help us in
setting program goals and in evaluating graduates.
With the Catholic, Benedictine tradition as the guiding principle,
the University accomplishes its mission by recognizing the spiritual and
ethical dimensions of all human activity and by celebrating the
uniqueness and worth of each human being. The goal is to provide a
living and learning environment that prepares each student for active,
responsible and productive lives in their professions and as members of
the local and global community.
In keeping with our Benedictine heritage, we provide an environment
where spirituality, hospitality, service and creativity can flourish. We
nurture the student-engineer’s spirit of inquiry and discovery,
including self-discovery, and provide opportunities for them to develop
their skills in varied forms of communication.
The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering runs two accredited
bachelor’s degree level programs: civil engineering and mechanical
engineering. In addition, there are three programs at the master’s
Master of Engineering Management Program,
Master of Mechanical Engineering, and
Master of Civil Engineering Program.
