About the College/Department:


Eastern Kentucky University is a regional, coeducational, public institution of higher education offering general and liberal arts programs, pre-professional and professional training in education and various other fields at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Located in Richmond, Madison County, Kentucky, EKU has a distinguished record of more than a century of educational service to the Commonwealth. Eastern Kentucky University is committed to access, equal opportunity, dignity, respect, and inclusion for all people, as integral to a learning environment.

Situated near the heart of the Bluegrass, Richmond is served by a network of major highways that make EKU easily accessible from all parts of Kentucky and surrounding states. Richmond is 26 miles southeast of Lexington, Kentucky. Interstate Highways I-75 (north-south) and I-64 (east-west) make the metropolitan areas of Cincinnati, 112 miles to the north, and Louisville, 110 miles to the west, within convenient distance by automobile. Richmond is also served by U.S. Route 25 from Southeastern Kentucky and Kentucky Route 52 from the east and west. The Bluegrass, Mountain, Daniel Boone, and Cumberland Parkways provide even greater accessibility by automobile since the city is located near the convergence of these arterial highways into the interstate system.

EKU is dedicated to high-quality instruction, scholarship, and service, and places emphasis on the three in that order. Through its colleges and schools, the University seeks to offer quality instruction at a variety of degree levels in general education, the arts, the sciences, business, education, pre-professional, and professional areas, and applied and technical disciplines. Through consultative services, continuing education, and the extended campus, the University seeks to provide service to the community and the region. Research seeks both to advance knowledge in the subject matter areas with which the University is concerned and to support the primary function of teaching.

The College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics at Eastern Kentucky University offers a broad range of degree programs in STEM areas that meet the needs of our students and prepare them for their chosen career or advanced studies.

Our outstanding faculty are committed to student success through excellent instruction, accessibility to students, and other high impact practices such as undergraduate research and hands-on instruction.

Our state-of-the-art Science Building provides laboratory and instructional spaces that are well-suited for engaged and transformative learning and cutting-edge research. Meadowbrook Farm provides students a unique experience to work with livestock and crop enterprises. It also serves as a learning resource for the agriculture community. Our natural areas at Lilley Cornett Woods, Maywoods, and Taylor Fork Ecological Area provide unparalleled outdoor facilities for environmental research and education. EKU's flight training operations at the Central Kentucky Regional Airport enables us to train the best and safest professional pilots, and the most forward-thinking managers coming out of academia today.

The School of Engineering, Aviation, Construction, and Technology is a rapidly growing group within Eastern Kentucky University's portfolio of degree programs, preparing professionals through ATMAE accredited bachelor, associate, and certification programs for careers in Aviation, Construction Management, Engineering Technology Management, and Manufacturing Engineering. We highly value excellence in teaching, and are a Boyer Model school.

The Department is located in the Ralph W. Whalin Technology Complex which includes approximately 100,000 square feet of classroom and laboratory space dedicated to automation, 3D printing/prototyping, robotics, electronics, computer aided drafting (CAD), flight simulators, quality assurance and metrology, materials and metallic processes, construction estimating, fluid power, networking, cyber security and computer applications.
