Engineers are in high demand in Alaska. At the University of Alaska Southeast, we recognize this need within our communities throughout Southeast. One of the biggest challenges we face is finding the most economical, efficient, and environmentally sound ways to use the vast natural resources that surround us. Opportunities abound in transportation, mining, environmental engineering, energy production and alternative energy. If you are the kind of person who enjoys the challenge of solving a problem, working as a team player, and figuring out how we as a society can do things better and more efficiently, then an engineering career may be for you.

Join us at UAS, where we now offer first-year engineering courses along with a solid core of math, science, and english classes to get you started on your engineering education.

Who are these engineers and what do they do?

Engineers use their imagination and analytical skills to invent, design, and build things that matter. They are team players with independent minds who turn ideas into reality. By dreaming up creative and practical solutions, engineers are changing the world all the time. The engineering field is as varied as engineers themselves. Engineers can design and build superstructures or delicate medical instruments. Engineers are exploring for energy and for new worlds in space. They are designing the environmental controls for an art museum or directing global sales of today’s hottest cars and computers. Who knows where the next great challenges will be?

The UAS pre-engineering program uses Cadence products.
