Course Information

Program Overview

Assumption College has established an agreement with the University of Notre Dame College of Engineering that allows qualified Assumption students to earn a B.A. in Chemistry, Environmental Science, Mathematics or Computer Science from Assumption College and a B.S. in one of several fields of Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.  The program is designed to provide the student with a strong liberal arts education in the sciences and mathematics. At Assumption, you will be in small classes with faculty who emphasize high-quality teaching. Students who complete the program will also receive state-of-the-art engineering training at the University of Notre Dame, one of the nation’s leading engineering universities. 

Students attend Assumption for 3 years where they pursue coursework specially approved to count toward an undergraduate degree in a major at Assumption, and transfer credit toward an undergraduate degree in a major at Notre Dame College of Engineering.

After the 5th semester the student applies for transfer admission as a first-semester junior to the specific program offered by Notre Dame College of Engineering. Applicants who have cumulative GPA 3.3 or higher, at least C in all courses, and recommendation from Assumption’s 3+2 Engineering Program coordinator, can normally be expected to be admitted to full standing and complete Notre Dame’s engineering degree requirements in 2 years. Upon transfer to Notre Dame, students receive the same consideration for financial aid as other transfer applicants. Upon completing the program, the student receives the Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) in their major from Assumption, and the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.) from Notre Dame in their major in the College of Engineering.
