In order to meet the nation’s need for competent engineers with a broad background in the liberal arts, Adrian College has established cooperative 3-2 dual-degree programs with Washington University (St. Louis) and the University of Detroit. Under these programs agreement, the student spends three years at Adrian College for basic studies in the sciences, mathematics, humanities and social sciences, followed by two years at one of the two universities for specialized studies in engineering. Upon completion of the five-year program, the student is awarded a B.A. or B.S. degree from Adrian College and a B.S. in engineering from the university. Students interested in the 3-2 program should contact the program liaison at either the University of Detroit or Washington University as soon as possible to receive advice regarding preparation for engineering specialties.
Adrian College students may instead choose to complete a dual-degree program with one of the other leading engineering schools in the Midwest. However, these programs often require more than two years of study at the engineering school and, therefore, are not formalized as 3-2 programs. These engineering schools include the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Michigan Technological University and Ohio State University, among others.
It is also possible to complete the basic pre-engineering curriculum in two years, enabling students to transfer into the third year of the program at an engineering school. These students earn a B.S. degree in engineering, but no degree from Adrian College. Students should consult the pre-engineering advisor in planning this program.
