Engineering (Cooperative)

Advisor: Kelly Krieble

3/2 Undergraduate Program

In cooperation with Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, Moravian College offers the following cooperative engineering programs:
   Biomedical Engineering
   Chemical Engineering
   Computer Engineering
   Computer Science
   Electrical Engineering
   Mechanical Engineering
   Systems Science and Engineering

Upon successful completion of three years at Moravian College and upon recommendation of the College, a student in the cooperative engineering program may apply for transfer to the appropriate engineering department of Washington University. Following completion of the engineering program, the student is awarded the Bachelor of Arts from Moravian and the Bachelor of Science in engineering from Washington University.

4/1 Graduate Program

A combined bachelor's and master's degree program in physics and mechanical engineering or mechanics is offered in cooperation with Lehigh University. This program enables qualified students to earn a Bachelor of Science in physics from Moravian College and a Master of Science in mechanical engineering or mechanics from Lehigh University with an average time of 5.5 years of full-time study.

The Major Requirements

Cooperative 3/2 engineering students complete the Learning in Common curriculum (with some exceptions). They are exempt from the Foreign Language (F3) requirement, and they complete the Quantitative Reasoning (F2) requirement with Mathematics 170 and the Laboratory Science (F4) requirement with Chemistry 113. In addition, they need complete only five of the six Multidisciplinary categories and one of the two Upper-Division category requirements.

In addition to the general requirements described above, 3/2 engineering students take four mathematics courses (170, 171, 211, 221), four science courses (Chemistry 113-114 and Physics 111-112), and four advanced courses to be chosen with the approval of the engineering advisor. All 3/2 engineering students, except those interested in chemical engineering, schedule Physics 111-112 and Mathematics 170-171 in the first year. Chemical engineering students schedule Chemistry 113-114 in the first year.
