Engineering concentrations: Two Schools, Two Degrees
Bethel College offers a collaborative program that lays the groundwork on which specialized engineering skills are built. Our innovative 3-2 engineering program allows you to earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics/physics from Bethel and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from a collaborating institution (either the University of Notre Dame or Trine University), normally over a five-year period. You complete three years of coursework in the sciences, mathematics and the liberal arts at Bethel, and then transition to a partnering university for two years in a specific engineering discipline.
Many engineers go on to be managers who need to understand both the business and technical aspects of the field. The Engineering Management major combines the strength of an engineering degree with practical management skills, preparing students for a career that is in-demand at many small businesses. Advances in science and technology and the growing complexity of business are strengthening the job market for graduates, with opportunities in business, education, government, engineering, and the physical and life sciences. Our majors have the advantage of a broad-based liberal arts education that allows them to connect and apply knowledge across disciplines. Employers rate the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills fundamental to mathematics among the skills they value most in employees.
