Union College offers an exceptional engineering education within a small liberal arts college. Class sizes are small and there are a large number of courses with associated laboratories so that students get hands-on experience. The engineering programs at Union College have excellent facilities and there are many opportunities for students to pursue research projects with engineering faculty. Students are encouraged to study abroad and about 70% of engineering students go on one of the many programs abroad that are offered. Outside the classroom, students become involved in a wide variety of clubs, honor societies, research, community service, and sports.
