3/2 Engineering Program

Three-two engineering is an academic program for three years of study at a liberals arts school followed by two years of study in an engineering program which results in bachelor’s degrees from the liberal arts college and from the engineering college – two bachelor’s degrees. Each college has its own set of graduation requirements for a 3-2 program (and a 4-2 program).

All majors must take (or satisfy the requirement of)

  1. the general 3/2 engineering courses (see below)
  2. the courses for one of the concentrations (see Computer Science below)
  3. and *then* two years worth of courses at one of the partnered engineering schools (all listed below)

I. 3/2 Engineering Program Requirements (All Majors)

  • One course in a 300-level foreign language, English 101, History 100, social science, fine arts, religion/philosophy
  • Calculus I,II, Multidimensional calculus, differential equations
  • Computer science course - intro to C, C++, Java, or Fortran
  • Physics I,II
  • Chemistry I,II
  • 4-2 engineering students must complete all departmental requirements for Sewanee graduation in their major and must pass their departmental comprehensive exam. 4-2 students graduate with their class.
  • Other courses in economics, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, computer science, or mathematics may be required as a pre-requisite for a particular field of engineering (see Computer Science below).
  • GPA in all math and science courses must be greater than 3.0, and overall GPA > 3.0.
**Comprehensive exams are not required for the 3-2 engineering program, but are required for the 4-2 engineering program.

II. 3/2 Engineering Program (Computer Science)

  1. CSCI 157 -
    Intro to Programming
  2. CSCI 257 -
    Data Structures
  3. CSCI 320 -
    Analysis of Algorithms
  4. CSCI 370 -
    Computer Organization
  5. CSCI 428 -
    Operating Systems
  6. CSCI xxx -
    Additional CSCI course
    numbered 270 or higher

III. Then choose one of :

  • Three(3) advanced courses in computer science or computer engineering at the designated engineering school. IN ADDITION TO whatever two year course of study is required by the school. These courses may overlap with those required in that two year course of study.
