  • Welcome From the Dean

    It is my pleasure to introduce you to the College of Engineering and Business at Gannon University. We have been a recognized leader in engineering and business education for over 50 years.

    Our undergraduate programs in computer science and software, biomedical, mechanical, electrical, industrial and environmental engineering are accredited by ABET and our business programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Our undergraduate programs build on a strong liberal arts foundation to prepare you for a successful career and our graduate programs put theory into practice.

    The College of Engineering and Business also plays a pivotal role in the economic health of our region. Our world-class faculty are passionate about their fields, and are committed to mentoring students into well-rounded, creative problem solvers who are prepared to face the challenges of today and tomorrow's complex technological and business environments. Our faculty and students work in partnership with the Small Business Development Center, the Beehive Network, and the Erie Technology Incubator to develop research and consulting opportunities for our students.

    We are poised to transition into an exciting new phase of elevating engineering, computing and business with our new cyber programs and business analytics focus while enriching our existing resources.

    Through learning, research, entrepreneurship and service, we commit to providing you an experience today that will transform your tomorrow.
