Pre-Engineering, A.B./B.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: DEPARTMENTS AND PROGRAMS

Rollins College cooperates with Case Western Reserve, University of Miami and Washington (St. Louis) University in combined programs designed for students who wish to become professional engineers. Students attend Rollins for three years in a program of liberal arts and science before transferring to the engineering school. Students receive a bachelor’s (A.B.) degree from Rollins and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from the engineering school.

To receive the A.B. degree from Rollins College with a major in pre-engineering, students must complete a set of core requirements in the sciences and mathematics; must satisfy all general education requirements of the College; must complete an approved area of concentration in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Computer Science; must successfully complete at least 105 semester hours of study at Rollins; and must complete at least 35 semester hours of study leading to the B.S. in engineering at one of the cooperative engineering schools. These requirements are normally met by the end of the fifth year of study. It is very important for students to understand that they cannot stay at Rollins for four years and major in pre-engineering. In order to satisfy the requirements of this program they must complete at least 35 hours of study at one of the cooperative engineering schools.

Fields of study available at the cooperating engineering universities include aerospace, biomedical, biosystems, chemical, civil, computer, data sciences, earth and environment, electrical, electrical and systems, energy, environmental and chemical, industrial, materials, mechanical, operations research, software, structural, systems, and textile engineering. Other fields are engineering and management systems, engineering mechanics, and computer science and engineering. The 1st and 2nd year requirements at Rollins for all of these programs include the following courses.

Other fields are engineering and management systems, engineering mechanics, and computer science and engineering.

The 1st and 2nd year requirements at Rollins for all of these programs include the following courses.

Major Requirements


Core Requirements


Chemistry or Data Analytics (2 courses)


Students pursing the data sciences dual degree with the University of Miami should take DTA 250 and MAT 219.  All other students should enroll in CHM 120 or 130 and CHM 121 or 131.

Areas of Concentration


Additionally, all students must complete the requirements in one of the following approved areas of concentration.

Note


During the sophomore year, students should meet with the Coordinator of the Cooperative Engineering (Pre-Engineering) Program, and plan a sequence of advanced courses that satisfy the concentration requirement at Rollins. The areas of concentration are similar to a minor in the field of study. Please refer to The Rollins College Cooperative Pre-Engineering Program: A Guide for Students and Advisors for details; it is available at http://www.rollins.edu/physics/.
