Engineering students attend Carthage for three years and, upon successful completion of the required courses listed below with certain GPA conditions, are admitted to a partnering engineering school 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 the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree from Carthage and the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree from the engineering school. The partnering engineering school is Case Western Reserve University: Case School of Engineering.
While at Carthage, 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.
See a sample schedule for students in the Engineering program
Required courses for admission to the partner engineering school:
- Chemistry 1010 General Chemistry I
- Chemistry 1020 General Chemistry II
- Computer Science 1110 Principles of Computer Science I
- Mathematics 1120 Calculus I
- Mathematics 1220 Calculus II
- Mathematics 2020 Differential Equations
- Mathematics 2120 Multivariate Calculus
- Physics 2200 General Physics I
- Physics 2210 General Physics II
Acceptance into the Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University is contingent on both a three-year Carthage GPA of at least 3.0 and a 3.0 GPA in the above required courses.
Scholarship students in the dual-degree program are encouraged to apply to the engineering schools for continuing scholarship support. Additional information on engineering scholarships can be found at the website www.engineeringdegree.com/scholarships.
