Honors and Scholars Programs
Ready to push yourself further? These academic opportunities allow you to go beyond the confines of a set curriculum, allowing you to pursue out-of-class endeavors (for credit!), conduct research, network with prominent corporate leaders and alumni, and define the best academic path for your goals.
Engineering Science and Mechanics
The College of Engineering has its own honors program: Engineering Science and Mechanics. The program is designed for students who excel in many areas of scientific discovery and for those who have interests in developing technologies, which exploit such innovations.
The Engineering Science honors program is distinct from the Schreyer Honors College, and students can be in either program, or they may choose to participate in both. More
