Engineering 3+2 Cooperative Program and Advising

Lebanon Valley College has a cooperative agreement with Case Western Reserve University. This agreement requires students to complete a technical core of science and mathematics courses at LVC with a GPA of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale).

Students at LVC follow one of two tracks, depending on their chosen field of engineering. For most engineering fields (civil, electrical, and mechanical for example), the student takes the physics track. For chemical engineering, the student takes the chemistry track. Students should be prepared to start with Calculus I during their first semester at LVC. In order to begin Calculus I, a student must attain a passing score on the LVC calculus-readiness exam. If a student does not attain a passing score, the student will need to take a summer math course in order to complete the program at LVC.

With close personal advising beginning when students first enter LVC as well as course equivalencies between LVC and the cooperating university, students have typically completed their engineering degrees in two years. However, LVC cannot guarantee that this can always be done due to the variability of course offerings at the engineering school and the diversity of requirements among the fields of engineering. Since the 3+2 Engineering Program requires three years at LVC, students transferring to LVC may not participate in the program.

Students interested in the physics engineering track should contact Dr. Dan Pitonyak. Those interested in the chemistry track should contact Dr. Anderson Marsh.
