Electrical Engineering Major
The Electrical Engineering program at Stonehill College seeks to provide students with the skills and background needed to thrive in their profession while also giving them the intellectual flexibility that comes from a well-rounded liberal arts education.
Stonehill seeks to develop engineer-innovators who design, explore, and create.
Students have the option of pursuing a four-year bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering at Stonehill or participating in Stonehill’s 3+2 dual-degree partnership with The University of Notre Dame. The 3+2 program allows students to benefit from the rigorous academics and close mentoring relationships of a quintessential New England College for three years and the expansive resources of a Top 20 nationally ranked research university for two years. It results in a bachelor of science in physics from Stonehill College and a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from The University of Notre Dame.
Unlike the highly specialized engineering degrees provided at research universities, our approach is intended to be interdisciplinary and application-oriented, and to emphasize the moral and social background within which the engineer will be working.
Earn 2 Degrees: 3+2 Dual-Degree Engineering Programs
In addition to its on-campus four-year engineering programs, Stonehill also offers dual-degree engineering programs through partnerships with two of our sister schools – The University of Notre Dame in Indiana and King’s College in Pennsylvania. The partnerships allow students to study three years at Stonehill for a science degree and two years at our partner school for their engineering degree.
Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
The Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) 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.
