Saint Michael’s College has an agreement with Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York, that allows students to follow an engineering program leading to two separate degrees: a B.A. from Saint Michael’s and a B.S. in Engineering from Clarkson. Students will complete three years of course work and residency at Saint Michael’s College, fulfilling all of the Liberal Studies requirements as well as the basic math and science requirements for the engineering program. In their third year students will apply for transfer to Clarkson University for the last two years of course work and residency. This five-year program is designed to prepare students in the more specialized fields of engineering: chemical, civil and environmental, electrical and computer, and mechanical and industrial.
In addition to this specialization, the Saint Michael’s portion of the program contributes considerable breadth in the liberal arts and sciences, more than is typically available in a conventional engineering program. The goal of our 3 + 2 engineering program is to produce expert engineers who are both knowledgeable and concerned about the society in which they work.
Below is a listing of the courses required as part of the Saint Michael’s portion of the 3 + 2 engineering curriculum.
