What is 3-2 Engineering?
You have Time to Decide…
At many engineering schools, you are forced to choose a major at the end of your first year. At Geneseo, you’ll have three years to prepare yourself for entry into any engineering discipline. You don’t even have to declare that you are a 3-2 student until your third year.
During this time, you’ll be exposed to a variety of liberal arts and sciences, which will help you decide on an engineering discipline, and prepare you for it. And, you’ll get a degree for it!
When you are ready to start engineering school, you’ll be more focused, better prepared, and more motivated.
Geneseo: A User-Friendly Environment
At most engineering schools, introductory classes can have several hundred students! At Geneseo, the largest technical classes have about 70 students, and upper level classes rarely exceed 20 students.
At Geneseo, you are not just another face in the mob. The faculty will know your name, even in your introductory classes.
Participation in Research Projects
At most engineering schools, research projects are conducted primarily by graduate students, not the undergraduates.
Unlike most engineering schools, Geneseo is an undergraduate institution. That means that the scientific research projects conducted in the participating programs are performed by faculty working hand in hand with undergraduates – we need you to get the work done! That means you have a good chance of being able to participate in a real science or engineering project.
Participation in a research project looks great on a resume, because it means that you have worked with real equipment, and that you have practical experience at getting the job done. In addition, many research students attend professional meetings to discuss their work, where they can meet contacts for future employment.
Various projects are available, ranging from industry sponsored engineering projects to pure science.
