1

This course meets a General Education requirement.

2

Required for chemical engineering. CHE344/CHE345 andCHE348/CHE349 strongly recommended.

The additional studies taken in a school of engineering are considered equivalent to the elective requirements for graduation from Bethel.

 An attractive and popular alternate route to a career in engineering is to receive either a B.S. or a B.A. degree from Bethel with a major either in physics or applied physics and then apply to a graduate program in engineering at another university. Typically this approach takes four years at Bethel and two at the school of engineering, resulting in a bachelor’s degree from Bethel and an M.S. in the engineering field of choice. The student applies to any school with a graduate program in engineering and will often receive full financial assistance.

1

Students must complete through the second semester of a first year language course or equivalent (Check the catalog for details of this option.)

2

Choose from ENR352/ENR353 or MAT344.

3

Electives choices depend on area of engineering interest. At least 12 credits must be chosen from Electronics, Modern Physics, Mathematical Methods in Physics & Engineering, Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Topics in Applied Physics, Statistics, and Mechanics of Materials, Probability and Statistics. Chemical Engineers must choose General Chemistry II, Organic Chemistry I & II. 

This program assumes a student will use PHY292/PHY292D andMAT124M to meet the general education Laboratory Science and Mathematics requirements. 

This is a dual-degree Engineering program. It must be completed at a university which offers engineering degrees.

Students receive their Bethel degree with an Engineering major only upon completion of the engineering degree at the other school. 

Most financial aid packages stipulate 12 credits/semester; Minnesota state grants are reduced when credit load falls below 15 credits/semester. (Interim credits may be split between fall and spring for state grant purposes only.)
