About the School

At Penn State, we believe that engineering education should prepare students for the competitive, global workplaces of the future. It is important for students to graduate with practical engineering experiences that will enable them to contribute quickly and in a meaningful way that aligns with the goals of their future employers. 

The School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs (SEDTAPP) delivers effective engineering education and unrivaled research opportunities through active, collaborative, project-based, and professionally oriented classroom experiences. SEDTAPP offers a variety of programs that partner faculty, students, and industry in the study of real-life engineering problems. Our programs teach students to solve real-life problems with innovative solutions. 

But what does that mean?

We are designers. We are leaders. We are entrepreneurs. We are humanitarians. We are technologists. We are educators. We are researchers. We are engineers. 

Our offerings are unique and so are we. We provide students with unrivaled research and educational opportunities. We encourage faculty to think outside of the box — in their courses, their research, and their service. We collaborate, across engineering disciplines, throughout the University, with colleagues at other colleges and universities, and with industry professionals, in order to constantly innovate and educate. 

From the moment you step on campus, we support you in your journey, as you Design Your Future.
