Engineering Dual-Degree Program Opportunities & Outcomes

Research Opportunities

The combination of Stonehill’s and the University of Notre Dame’s renowned undergraduate research opportunities means students will have far more in-the-field research experience to support their integrated learning at both schools. 

Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience

S.U.R.E. is an opportunity for students who have completed their first year at Stonehill to perform significant, publishable, full-time research under the guidance of and in collaboration with an experienced faculty researcher.

Recent Example

  • Chemical Engineering major Hannah Fitch ’15 and Mechanical Engineering major Melissa Drury ’15 worked with Cheryl Schnitzer, associate professor of Chemistry, on artificial photosynthesis. This research will focus on the light-harvesting antenna complex (LH2) system of photosynthesis and the dynamics of energy transfer among components of the complex.

Research at the University of Notre Dame

In addition to research at Stonehill, the University of Notre Dame offers undergraduate opportunities for cutting-edge research in a variety of facilities across campus, from designing micro air vehicles to studying the degradation of organic contaminants in groundwater.

“ The best thing about being an Engineering major at Stonehill was that even though I was being exposed to all the physics and engineering classes, I was also taking classes such as economics, philosophy, religion, even studio guitar.”
Eliseo Miranda ’13, who participated in our 3+2 Dual-degree Engineering Program and before graduating secured a position with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which has provided him a full scholarship for a master's degree

Career Services Resources for Students

The Office of Career Services offers extensive assistance to students seeking employment, pursuing advanced studies or participating in postgraduate service opportunities. By completing internships and utilizing mentors, students are empowered to build lifelong career management skills.
