The Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering

Justin Myrick, Dean
A. Fort Gwinn, Jr., Associate Dean

Engineers solve problems. They apply science, mathematics and creativity to invent, design, test, build, deliver, operate, and maintain engineering systems that meet the needs of society. In the latter half of the 20th century, engineers developed the personal computer, the space shuttle, artificial hearts, cellular phones and many other “high-tech” products. The opportunities to use technology for the benefit of 21st century society will be even greater.
 
The Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering provides students with an excellent opportunity to prepare for an exciting engineering career in an educational environment that also encourages Christian character and spiritual growth. In creating this opportunity for students, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Jones have built upon the original goals of Lipscomb University that “such other branches of learning may be added as will promote usefulness and good citizenship among men.” In keeping with that goal, graduates of the Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering will be challenged to use their engineering education for the betterment of society, their profession and their faith community.
 
The Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering consists of the following academic departments: Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Department of Mechanical Engineering and the M.S. program in Engineering Management (see Graduate Catalog). The College offers three majors that lead to a Bachelor of Science degree from Lipscomb University. All three undergraduate engineering degrees, including mechanical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and civil engineering, are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
 
Off-site learning experiences (i.e. CO-OP and internship) are required in many courses of study at Lipscomb and strongly recommended in others. Students should be aware that many experiential sites require satisfactory documentation of personal identification in the form of driver’s licenses, social security cards, passports, drug screening and background checks. Students should make sure that they are aware of and can meet all documentation requirements well in advance of the timeframe for admission into the respective program and placement into these sites.

Fundamentals of Engineering Exam Requirement

Licensure is an important part of the engineering profession; therefore all undergraduate students planning to graduate from an engineering program within the Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering are required to show proof of having taken the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam in their chosen discipline prior to receiving a degree.

The mission of the engineering programs at Lipscomb University is to prepare its students for engineering careers guided by a Christian understanding of the mission, methods and structure of their profession and of the world they will serve.
