Pre-Engineering and Dual Degree Program
All accredited engineering schools require their first and second-year students to take a relatively standardized set of mathematics and physics courses that are commonly referred to as pre-engineering courses. Students who perform well in these courses are accepted into the engineering program of their choice, and complete the specialized courses associated with that program during their third and fourth years. Stetson does not offer an engineering degree, but it does offer the standard pre-engineering courses, and students interested in engineering have three options available to them. Students who choose to attend Stetson while preparing for a career in engineering benefit from the fostering atmosphere of small class sizes and close interaction with faculty, in addition to developing the communications and critical thinking skills that are the hallmarks of a liberal arts education.
