Program Overview

A student may choose to complete a four year degree at Centenary before pursuing studies in engineering. The Engineering Sciences minor is designed so that those students can get the necessary background and experience to enter a degree program in engineering, perhaps with some advanced standing. It may be in the student’s best interest to elect additional hours in physics, computer science, or another natural science. Students should consider completing the CA requirement by enrolling in ENGR 400.
