Considering the Engineering Program at Dartmouth?
Jul 28, 2011 | by Chelsea Sonksen | The Colby Echo
Have you ever wondered how the Colby-Dartmouth Engineering Program works? Well, I too was a bit curious. So I interviewed Chris Hoder, a Colby student studying at Dartmouth right now, to hear a little bit more about the program...
Chelsea Sonksen: So, how did you come to consider the Dartmouth 3-2 Program?
Chris Hoder: I had been somewhat undecided about whether or not I was going to do this program. During sophomore year I considered a bunch of different options for my junior year-- from studying abroad to taking a term off for an internship. I actually decided I was not going to go on the 3-2 program at one point, but after visiting Dartmouth and talking to a few people who had done the dual degree program, I decided it was something I wanted to do academically.
CS: Can you explain what it entails?
CH: I applied my sophomore spring to the program and am currently spending my entire junior year “abroad” at Dartmouth, studying engineering. During this year I am taking 6 engineering courses, which consist mostly of the introductory/required engineering courses. I will then return to Colby next year to graduate with my class as a senior. After graduation I return to the Thayer school of Engineering as a graduate student for my Bachelor of Engineering degree.
