The Bachelor of Science in Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The major provides preparation for engineering employment in industry or for graduate study in engineering.
The department offers several different concentrations designed to meet a variety of students’ needs. Students with a possible interest in physics should also see that section.
A Bachelor of Science degree with a major in engineering includes the following coursework in math, science and engineering:
A minimum of 15 additional credits must be chosen from other engineering courses
A maximum of one credit of internship (ENGS 499) and research (ENGS 490) may be counted toward the major. All engineering majors must select one of the options. In general, approved mathematics or basic science courses are those appropriate for majors in that discipline. Twenty-four hours of work at the level of 300 or above must be completed at Hope College.
Students interested in Aerospace Engineering should consult with the engineering chairperson as early as possible.
