Engineering majors take on “real world” projects with local industry, nonprofit, and governmental partners. Carthage also has an established in-house program that develops engineering payloads for zero-gravity, with multiple NASA-funded projects.
SUMMER UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience, or SURE, offers Carthage students the opportunity to work one-on-one with a professor during the summer doing real research work. Students receive a stipend, room and board on campus, and a small research budget.
January Term, or J-Term, is a month-long period of study in January in which all academic departments offer innovative courses on campus, as well as study tours in other countries. While many students use J-Term to fill an academic requirement, others gain valuable global experience by traveling abroad.
