Meet the Faculty
Real world experience through service is the hallmark of engineering at SFU. No matter which discipline you choose, you'll work on authentic projects that make a difference both in Pennsylvania and abroad.
Full-scale engineering programs, complete with advanced labs, have traditionally been the domain of large research institutions. A small liberal arts school with a robust engineering department is a unique find. Here you can have the benefits of a large research university program in a more personalized setting.
The SFU Advantage:
The Institute for Energy was recently awarded a $20,000 grant from Constellation Energy to help support the new tiny classroom traveling to schools and events around the state.

Researchers from Saint Francis University, the University of Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania State University have found that exposure to trace metals from potatoes grown in soil irrigated with waters from the Potosi mining region in Bolivia may put residents at risk of non-cancer health illnesses.
Three students in the petroleum and natural gas engineering major at Saint Francis University were awarded scholarships worth $2500 each.
When the temperatures reached an abnormal high of over 70 degrees Fahrenheit in February, many professors headed outdoors with their classes. Professor Joseph Goodwill took things a step further. For his Environmental Transport Processes class (ENVE 312), he took his Junior Engineering students and some special equipment outside.
Seven members of the ASMR student chapter helped to
plant almost 2,000 bare-root plants at a Clearfield, PA wetland site.
Event offers students a chance to talk one-on-one with potential engineering employers.
Saint Francis University School of Science, Environmental Engineering Program,
and Center for Watershed Research & Service is pleased to welcome Fulbright
Scholar Dr. Ruben Mamani from Bolivia to campus.
Get to know Dr. Mamani
Desmend, an incoming freshman in the petroleum and natural gas engineering program, is no stranger to Saint Francis University. Participating in the University’s Upward Bound Program, he was one of only 1,000 scholarship recipients, out of 53,000 applicants across the U.S.
Thanks to a generous donation from Gwin Dobson & Foreman Consulting Engineers the Environmental Engineering department has an Armfield hydraulic flume to use in classroom teaching and in student research.
