Elizabethtown College, a small institution of higher learning located in Lancaster County, provides traditional four year engineering studies within a traditional liberal arts environment. Offering Bachelor of Science degrees in physics, industrial engineering management, computer engineering, and general engineering with concentrations in electrical, mechanical, and sustainable design, the Physics and Engineering Department faculty deliver student-centric instruction in an experience-based learning setting. “Project-based” learning, allows students to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experience by applying classroom learning while practicing the “soft skills” that are much desired by potential hiring organizations. Students will present the results of work completed during introductory and capstone project courses in an exhibition hall format that offers ample opportunities for individual dialogue between students and attendees while offering opportunities for networking among professionals from ASQ, IIE, APICS, ASME, and PMI.
