Utah is home to nearly 8,200 high-tech companies. As a result, the demand for more engineers, computer scientists, and technologists along the Wasatch Front is consistently increasing. Utah Valley University’s (UVU) College of Engineering & Technology is poised to address workforce needs today, but for generations of students to come.

Engineering YOUR Future Today

"UVU is incredible. Horrocks Engineering now employs roughly 20 part-time or full-time employees who are UVU students or alumni. A new building will provide education to even more students, which will help us meet the growing demands of our industry in Utah."

-Ron Mortimer,
Executive Vice President at Horrocks Engineers Inc. & Executive VP for American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC)

The UVU College of Technology & Engineering has grown both in enrollment and prestige. In 2021, the college introduced a new Master of Science (MS) degree in engineering and technology management. Additionally, all five engineering programs – civil, computer, electrical, mechanical, and software engineering – earned accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

UVU’s promise of an accessible, affordable, quality education is attracting more students than ever to the College of Engineering & Technology. A state- of-the-art engineering building will allow the university to increase capacity to accommodate student demand and graduate qualified professionals to meet the region’s demands. These emerging engineers and skilled workers will fill open positions and address employee shortages in the region and beyond. We appreciate your support in making the new engineering building a reality.
