Engineering Pre-Professional Programs
Concordia College offers pre-engineering programs in collaboration with the College of Engineering at the Valparaiso University in Indiana. Pre-engineering students have the option of participating in a dual program. In this five-year program, students spend their first three years at Concordia taking courses in physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and the liberal arts. They finish the program by spending the next two years at the Valparaiso University taking engineering and applied science courses.
Upon successful completion of the program requirements, students receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from Concordia with a major in applied science and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Valparaiso in one of the three programs offered, namely, mechanical, electrical, or computer engineering.
The faculty advisors for the pre-engineering program are predominantly members of the physics and mathematics departments. Typical schedules of courses allowing students to meet required core and science courses may be obtained from these advisors.
