College of Engineering

At the University of Alaska Anchorage, you can pursue your dream of becoming an engineer while living in the business, industrial, cultural, and recreational center of Alaska.

As an undergraduate, you can pursue Bachelor's degrees in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Computer Systems Engineering, Computer Science, or Geomatics (Surveying and Mapping), and you can pursue graduate degrees and certificates in several disciplines.

Anchorage is where it's happening.  Here you will find all of the major employers of engineering talent in Alaska. This means that you have a great shot at getting an engineering job even before you graduate.

The Alaska Department of Labor has projected the state will need 300 computer and engineering professionals annually through 2022 -- 96 new positions and 204 to replace retirees.  UAA's College of Engineering is committed to producing cutting-edge graduates ready to energize the state's growing engineering community.
