Description

A sizable number of Colby students each year apply to the Dartmouth and Columbia dual-degree engineering programs. Colby does not have an in-house engineering program, but provides preparatory engineering coursework. Having a personal interest in pursuing an Engineering degree, I have been able to know our program first-hand and talk to my peers about it. The requirements are challenging and the overall process is confusing and time-consuming. Although the amount of work and preparation is high, admission to the partner colleges is not guaranteed. My research analyzes how implementing an engineering program at Colby would impact the academic careers of our students. Regardless of the challenges and costs of implementing this program, I find that there exist a wide range of potential benefits to the school itself.
