Carthage students pursuing a career in engineering can attend Carthage for three years and, upon successful completion of the required courses listed below with certain GPA conditions, are assured admission into an engineering program at one of two prominent engineering schools for completion of the final four to five semesters of what is typically a five-year program.

Upon graduation from the engineering school, students receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from Carthage and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from either Case Western Reserve University or Washington University in St. Louis.

While at Carthage, dual-degree pre-engineering students must major in one of the natural sciences, mathematics, or computer science. Current students should follow the official College Catalog from the year they entered Carthage, and work with their advisors and the department chair to ensure all requirements are met.

  • Chemistry 1010 General Chemistry I
  • Chemistry 1020 General Chemistry II
  • Computer Science 1810 Principles of Computer Science I
  • Mathematics 1120 Calculus I
