Engineering LC

The community is designed mainly for the following engineering majors: Electrical, Aerospace, Biomedical and Mechanical. However, other Parks College Engineering, Aviation, and Technology students are welcome to live in the Learning Community as well. This includes students majoring in any Aviation or Physics programs.



The Engineering and Innovation Learning Community in the Griesedieck Complex is an excellent opportunity for students to live in a community of scholars that share a commitment to the field of Engineering, Physics, and Flight Science.

The students in this community will benefit from the ongoing support of peers and faculty with similar academic interests in the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation, and Technology.

Examples of Community Experiences

  • Touring the City Museum 
  • Site tours at Boeing and Caterpillar Plant 
  • Participation and attendance at the annual pumpkin launch contest 
  • Egg drop contest 
  • Ruben's Tube experiment 
  • Paint Ball trip with discussion of the physics 
  • Make a Difference Day: Painted at a local elementary school. 
  • Card Board City: Built housing structures from cardboard and slept in them for one night to raise awareness about homelessness.
