Students in Oberlin’s 3-2 Engineering major will develop not just the requisite grounding in science and mathematics, but also the creativity, communication skills, problem solving mindset, and sensitivity to real problems that are hallmarks of successful engineers. Majors pursue studies in the liberal arts, including mathematics and sciences, during three years at Oberlin. They later complete an accredited schedule of engineering courses during two years at an affiliated engineering school. Oberlin’s partner schools are California Institute of Technology (Caltech; Pasadena), Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland), Columbia University (New York), and Washington University (St. Louis).
