3+2 Engineering

The most popular program is the 3+2 plan in which a student spends three years in a pre-engineering curriculum at Providence College where the humanities, science, and mathematics are blended to produce the kind of fundamental background needed for future problem solvers. The final two years of study are spent in an engineering concentration of the student's choice at one of our affiliate universities. Students may participate in graduation ceremonies at Providence College at the end of their fourth year. The degree from the associated university is awarded at the end of the fifth year.

The Major

At the completion of the five-year program, the successful candidate receives two degrees: a B.S. individualized program degree in mathematics, chemistry, and physics from Providence College, and a B.S. in an engineering concentration from the associated university.

Engineering concentrations at the affiliated universities include:

  • Aerospace
  • Chemical
  • Civil
  • Electrical
  • Mechanical
  • Mechanical-Industrial
  • Mechanical-Nuclear
  • Metallurgical Engineering

Special areas of study are available in environmental, biomedical, computer engineering, systems science, and engineering and other multi-disciplinary engineering fields.
