Honors Program

The School of Engineering offers an honors program for undergraduate engineering students who exhibit outstanding academic ability. Students who have a combined math-critical reading SAT score of 1450 or better, including minimum scores of 750 in math and 650 in critical reading; a high school rank in the top 10 percent of their graduating class; and math placement in Honors Calculus are eligible for consideration for admission to the program. The SAT-1 Essay score must be submitted, but is not currently used in the eligibility phase.

During the first year of the undergraduate program, students register for 01:640:191-192 Honors Calculus or honors sections of 01:640:151-152 Calculus for Mathematical and Physical Sciences; 01:750:271-272 Honors Physics; 01:355:103 Exposition and Argument; and 14:440:191-192 Honors Introduction to Engineering I and II. During the second year, students take 01:640:291 Honors Calculus or an honors section of 01:640:251 Multivariable Calculus; 01:750:273 Honors Physics; and 14:440:291 Honors Engineering Mechanics: Statics. For majors that require Engineering Mechanics II: Dynamics there is also an honors section of that course: 14:440:292. With special permission, students may register in honors seminars offered by other academic units at the university. In the third year, students may be eligible to participate in the James J. Slade Scholars Program, which provides an opportunity to participate in research as an undergraduate student. For those who choose to enroll in the accelerated bachelor of science/master of science (B.S./M.S.) program, the 6 credits required for the Slade Scholars Program may be applied to the M.S. degree as graduate credit.
