About Engineering 3+2 at LVC
In our cooperative 3+2 Engineering Program, you'll earn two bachelor’s degrees in five years. You'll spend the first three years on LVC's campus getting your bachelor of science degree in chemistry, computer & data science, or physics. Then add two additional years at another accredited institution, such as Penn State or Case Western, to complete an engineering degree.
Gain a strong foundation in mathematics and science by addressing real-world questions through challenging coursework and practical learning experiences. Recent graduates are working at such places as Procter & Gamble, the Department of Defense, and the United Space Alliance.
Why Engineering at LVC?
- LVC’s 3+2 Engineering Program, which has been offered for more than 40 years, enables students to study science and engineering while also gaining the broader critical thinking, writing, and speaking skills that employers seek.
- Engineering majors benefit from close personal interaction with their faculty, and from the College’s strong Science and Mathematics programs.
- Though students can go to any accredited engineering school, LVC has cooperative agreements with Pennsylvania State University at University Park and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. For requirements and the list of engineering majors available for LVC students at Penn State and Case Western, see Cooperating Programs and Advising. Note: Not all engineering majors at Penn State are available on the 3+2 Engineering Program.
LVC, its faculty, and the 3+2 Engineering program provided me with a well-rounded Physics and Engineering education. Having both a Liberal Arts degree and an Engineering degree is an advantage versus many other engineering graduates.
