3-2 Engineering Program

From building bridges to designing computer chips, engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to solve real world problems and are essential to the technology-based economy of the modern world. Engineers solve interesting technical problems in many contexts and in many industries, finding their way into the top ranks of executives at major corporations.

Students in the 3-2 Program normally spend three years at Whittier College and two years attending an engineering school. The five-year program leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree from Whittier College – in either physics, math, or chemistry - and a bachelor of science degree in engineering from a university. This program is not available to transfer students.

3-2 Program students benefit from the broad intellectual training offered by a liberal arts college and the technical training offered by an engineering school. Students who complete 3-2 engineering programs often find themselves choosing between excellent opportunities in graduate school and industry.

Currently, Whittier College offers joint 3-2 engineering programs with the University of Southern California and the University of Minnesota.
