Sewanee’s challenging pre-engineering curriculum provides students with a solid foundation in math and science and readies them for graduate work. The program produces students with the background, technical skills, social awareness, and discerning judgment necessary for advanced study in any engineering concentration.
The University collaborates with Columbia University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Washington University in St. Louis to combine the liberal arts and engineering curricula. In this track (called the 3/2 program), students end up receiving two baccalaureate degrees after studying for three years at Sewanee and two years in the engineering institution. Incoming students interested in the 3/2 program generally complete two semesters each of physics, chemistry, and mathematics during their freshman year.
