Located in Dallas Texas, The Lyle School of Engineering is based on the Southern Methodist University's (SMU) campus. The school has an innovative and practical approach to teaching, which has been ranked in the top 26 precent of American schools (U.S. News & World Report 2020).
Both SMU and Lyle School of Engineering offer a range of dual and joint degrees from their world-class research and education center. This includes the Engineering/MBA and Engineering Entrepreneurship, both of which are in partnership with the Cox School of Business.
The 2,000 students who study at Lyle are supported by a faculty staff of 80 who are internationally recognized for their expertise and contributions to engineering. The close student-teacher ratio of 11:1 allows for one-to-one advice and accessible support.
Located on the 14th most beautiful campus in America (Princeton Review), Lyle's state-of-the-art facilities include specialist research laboratories and advanced teaching spaces. Its subject-specific services provide a practical learning experience which is further enhanced by school events. This includes the regular Willis M. Tate Distinguished Lecture Series, where students can watch inspirational speakers including U.S. presidents, senators, and foreign leaders. Lyle students also have access to SMU's campus facilities, including on-site accommodation, sports centers, and a huge range of competitive and recreational clubs.
Lyle is always looking out for student's employability. The campus's proximity to the thriving city of Dallas helps secure over 4,400 internships a year from major corporations. Additionally, for over ten years, more than 30 percent of enrollments have been female engineers, one of the highest percentages at any school.
