Welcome to the Division of Engineering, Business and Computing (EBC) at Penn State Berks. With seven baccalaureate programs, two associate degrees and four minors, we prepare students to tackle tomorrow’s challenges today.

We have the only engineering programs in Berks County (Mechanical Engineering and Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology). Our business programs prepare students to work in a variety of fields, from inter-disciplinary Business to Accounting to Hospitality Management. Our programs in the information sciences (Information Science and Technology and Security and Risk Analysis) prepare students to work in digital technology and cyber security, among other areas. Students in any major can complete our minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation to hone the skills of creative thinking and problem solving.

Learning isn’t limited to the classroom at Penn State Berks. Students have the opportunity to conduct research with faculty, gain experience through internships and interact with local businesses and non-profit organizations through our Learning Factory and Center for Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development.

Our faculty bring a balance of academic excellence and industry experience. Our tenure line faculty present their research in top-tier journals and in conferences around the world while our fixed term faculty bring years of professional experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely campus and state of the art facilities in the Gaige Technology and Business Innovation Building.

Warmest Regards,

Janelle B. Larson, D.Phil.
