Any engineers do a 3+2? insight

  1. Sep 17, 2008 #1
    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if anyone is either currently attending, or has already gone through a 3+2 program for engineering. For those that don't know what this is, it is when you study the basic math/gen ed classes at one college, then continue to study mostly engineering at another school that is more suited for it, and earn a dual degree in the engineering field of ones choice + a degree in physics/chemistry/math. I just wanted to know about any experiences, maybe how good this would be to a resume and job outlook, perhaps info on work loads/social life while trying this... or the extreme lack of social life :smile:. It seems to me that this might not be too much extra work, because alot of courses overlap in these fields. Now of course, there will be extra requirements to get a full degree in math/physics/chem, but a decent bit will transfer, or at least that is my belief. Any kind of info is greatly appreciated, in that this might have a big influence on the choice of my college, because one of the colleges that i am looking into only has a 3+2, and the final 2 years is spent at maryland or delaware, respectable schools, for the same (low) price that i will be paying for the first 3 years.

    Thanks fellas.
