I believe having smaller class sizes at PNW compared to other big engineering universities really has allowed me to gain more hands-on experience (especially in labs) that I would not have been able to have at other schools.

Dr. Neeti Parashar, Professor of Physics

We at PNW are on the global map of scientific discoveries.

I currently work as a structural engineer for Burns and McDonnell. PNW prepared me for this work by building my technical background and offering the experiential learning opportunities that got me planning, scheduling, budgeting, designing, constructing, with adherence to codes and standards.

The education I received at PNW gave me the technical aptitude and critical thinking. I rely on minute-by-minute in a fast paced, sometimes unforgiving, and constantly changing career.

PNW provided all of the courses and extracurricular activities so that I had enough knowledge and experience to make the transition from student to full-time engineer an easy one. In my whole career, I have not felt unprepared for the technical challenges at hand.
