The following program is implemented in consultation with the pre-engineering advisor at Hillsdale College:
An engineering curriculum that includes about two years of liberal arts courses, common to the various engineering areas. Two to three years of engineering studies follow, depending on the engineering specialty and the engineering school. The common liberal arts core generally includes humanities, social sciences, English, science and mathematics courses. Thus, one may study liberal arts courses at Hillsdale College for two years before taking junior and senior courses at any college or university with an engineering program. Some schools may require a few hours of additional courses in their first two years, such as computer drawing or FORTRAN programming, that Hillsdale does not offer. However, these courses may be taken after transferring to the engineering school. Thus, a standard engineering curriculum may consist of two years of liberal arts courses at Hillsdale College replacing the equivalent at the engineering school. After these courses are transferred to the engineering school, courses may be taken there to complete the engineering degree. The advantage of this is to be able to take the science, math, and liberal arts courses at Hillsdale College. In all cases, the student should consult with the Hillsdale College pre-engineering advisor and the school to which the transfer is planned to determine course selections. If a conflict between course requirements occurs, courses required by Hillsdale College will be replaced by those required by the engineering school.
