How will you create for good? 

At the Russ College of Engineering and Technology, graduates are equipped with the skills to research, design, develop, and test new technologies and industry applications — and to position themselves as leaders.

For more than a century, we’ve been teaching engineers how to create for good — how to engineer a better future with responsible and sustainable design. It’s impossible to ignore the impact our graduates have on the world around us.

Choose Ohio University because you want to earn your degree from a nationally ranked leader in education and research, because you want a degree you can be proud of, and because you want an education that can prepare you for the future.


Creating for good means making the world a better place.

Creating an environment in which people can succeed in what they were meant to do.

Designing technology to enhance the human condition.

That could mean, improving a neonatal unit in a hospital. It could mean improving an assembly line at a car manufacturer, and so making that company more efficient.

It enables people to be safer and healthier and more productive in their personal lives and in their careers.

The things that we design and the things that we fix and we work on are really what give us our standard of living, right? Make our lives better. We’re talking about improving the human condition and that’s one part of the good. And then the other part is that it really has to have had wide-spread impact.

We begin to understand how many of the things we do are outside of Ohio University.

When you think about engineering as creating for good, it really just highlights not just what we’re doing, but the impact it has on society.

Industry outlook and career opportunities

The rapid pace of technological innovation and development will likely drive demand for electrical and electronics engineers in research and development, according to Today’s Engineer Online. Engineering expertise is expected to be needed to develop distribution systems related to new technologies.

Job growth for electrical and electronics engineers is likely to be greatest in engineering services firms. These engineers also are likely to experience job growth in computer systems design as that industry continues to implement more powerful portable computing devices.
