3-2 Engineering Program

The 3-2 Engineering Program is designed for students who understand that a Christian liberal arts education provides the best possible framework for life in the future regardless of specific vocation, specifically including those students who feel called to the discipline of engineering. We believe this and have implemented a unique 3-2 program that includes significant engineering course preparation, complete with a dedicated engineering lab and extensive development of the skills and tools needed to become successful engineering students and career engineers. Read an overview of our 3-2 Engineering program.

Students attracted to a Christian liberal arts curriculum who are also seriously considering an engineering career may choose to spend three years at Gordon and then transfer to an engineering school for two more years. The student will earn bachelor's degrees from both Gordon and the engineering school. In addition to Gordon's Core Curriculum, the following courses should be taken at Gordon: 

PHY121, 122 Introductory Physics I, II
PHY125 Introduction to Engineering and Applied Science
PHY214/MAT214 Mathematical Methods in Physics I
