Other Information

Accreditation

The Engineering, Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, and Information Systems degrees are accredited by ABET, the recognized U.S. accreditor of university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. Accreditation ensures the quality of the post-secondary education students receive.

Internships

Many companies and governmental institutions provide exceptional opportunities for students to develop skills in a professional environment. Students’ internship assignments are jointly supervised by company management and Southern Utah University faculty members. Academic credit is awarded for internships and financial compensation may be available. More information is available from the departments.

Pre-Graduate School

Plan your SUU baccalaureate degree with sufficient math and science courses to qualify you for admission to the graduate program of your choice. Be cognizant of the admission requirements of the graduate program of your choice. Undergraduate research experience is essential for admission to graduate school programs.

Something to Consider

Many students either find themselves waiting a year for graduate/professional school acceptance, or recognize that a graduate-level credential would improve their career preparation. The MBA program in the SUU Dixie L. Leavitt School of Business welcomes applicants with undergraduate degrees in any program. There are admission requirements, but they are minimal and relatively low cost. Please contact Amanda Wilford, MBA Program Director, at (435) 865-8514, or Miranda Gubler, the Online and Graduate Coordinator for the School of Business, at (435) 586-5462.
