Office for Digital Learning

Penn State's Engineering Office for Digital Learning supports engineers in lifelong learning - the process of acquiring the skills and knowledge necessary to remain current in a chosen field.

In today's rapidly-changing, knowledge-based economy, engineers must devote the time and effort to learn new skills and technologies in order to add value for their employers and clients and to remain personally marketable.

An undergraduate degree in Engineering provides both an entree to the profession and a foundation for future learning. It is, however, the beginning, not the end, of lifelong learning. It has been estimated that the life of a B.S. degree in Engineering is about seven years. After that, technological change and innovation have created new knowledge of which the person must become aware and capable of applying. Considering that an engineering career may span 40+ years, one may have to re-invent oneself several times over. The good news is that it is easier than you think.

The university specializes in discovering and organizing knowledge, we feel that we have a major role to play in supplying this packaged knowledge to those who need it. That's where the Engineering ODL office comes in. We link engineers' educational needs with the knowledge discovered and organized by the Engineering faculty. We also support the faculty in the delivery of quality programs.

We take great pride in bringing you quality courses, taught by expert instructors, and delivered in a user-friendly manner. We hope that you find what you are seeking; if you don't, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We're here to serve you.
