Engineering 3+2 Programs
In addition to Stonehill’s on-campus computer engineering and electrical engineering degrees, engineering degrees are also offered in partnership with two of our sister schools, The University of Notre Dame and King’s College. Students study three years at Stonehill for a science degree and two years at our partner school for their engineering degree.
Selective Liberal Arts College, Nationally Ranked Research University
The following engineering degrees are available through Stonehill’s 3+2 partnerships:
- Aerospace Engineering (The University of Notre Dame )
- Chemical Engineering (The University of Notre Dame )
- Civil Engineering (The University of Notre Dame, King’s College)
- Computer Engineering (The University of Notre Dame )
- Electrical Engineering (The University of Notre Dame)
- Environmental Engineering (The University of Notre Dame )
- Mechanical Engineering (The University of Notre Dame, King’s College)
By obtaining two degrees, students gain a more robust educational foundation that better prepares them for their graduate school ambitions and/or careers in engineering career plans.
Stonehill students gain knowledge and the ability to think logically, analytically and creatively under the umbrella of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Technical training is integrated seamlessly with the arts and sciences so that graduating science majors are not only superb scientists but also lifelong learners.
Stonehill, King's and Notre Dame are all sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross, which values integrity and puts as much emphasis on education as on helping develop compassionate leaders and global thinkers.
Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience
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.
- 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.
