Engineers are, quite literally, the problem-solvers of the world.
Every day they find new and inventive ways to apply science and scientific breakthroughs to commerce and industry. Virtually everything you use on a daily basis-from setting your alarm clock, to turning on a light, to starting your car-operates smoothly due to the work of engineers.
The types of systems the engineers work on separate the technical fields of engineering into disciplines. A partial list of engineering disciplines includes mechanical, electrical, chemical, environmental, materials, financial, aerospace, and many more.
Franklin & Marshall participates in a cooperative-degree engineering program with four ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited partner schools: Case Western Reserve University, Columbia University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Washington University in St. Louis.
After completing three or four years of study at Franklin & Marshall, qualified students finish the cooperative-degree program by completing two more years at the partner school of their choice. As a result, the students earn two bachelor’s degrees: a Bachelor of Arts degree in their major from Franklin & Marshall, as well as a Bachelor of Science in engineering.
With the advantages of a broad liberal arts education coupled with a focused technical education, as well as two degrees, students can choose from a broad range of career paths including graduate programs.
