Welcome to The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering website.

This is a great time to be considering a career in engineering, and Saint Martin’s is a great place to earn your degree. More than 1,300 Saint Martin’s engineering graduates have gone on to work on industrial and civil engineering projects in state and local government agencies, as well as nationally and internationally. Approximately 50 Saint Martin’s Engineering alumni work at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and many others work as city engineers or for the Washington State Department of Transportation. Several Saint Martin’s graduates have founded or lead regional, national and international engineering companies. Furthermore, our faculty members have received numerous national and regional awards and recognition.

The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering is experiencing a sense of renewal; we’ve recently moved into our new engineering building, Cebula Hall, the highest scored Platinum LEED building in the Western Hemisphere; we’ve started plans for a new industrial lab building; we’ve revised our curriculum to better prepare our graduates to face the challenges of the 21st century; we’ve established a study abroad program; we’ve developed seamless 5 year programs enabling students to graduate in 5 years with their undergraduate and graduate degrees; and, we are now offering graduate assistantships to well-qualified students.

Society needs engineers; whether it is to treat water so you can drink it, improve upon the infrastructure that we use every day, create robots, or design new bio-medical devices that can change the way we treat the sick, engineers play an important role. They are the unsung heroes of society. There has never been a better time to study engineering than now, especially at Saint Martin’s University. I hope to see you here soon.
