Great Liberal Arts Colleges with Engineering Programs

Posted in Your College List

In search of great liberal arts colleges with engineering programs?

Here's a list of popular liberal arts colleges offering engineering as part of their curriculum. Some like Swarthmore and Bucknell offer traditional engineering majors, while others offer joint "3/2" programs with other institutions to let you combine a great liberal arts education with an engineering degree over five years.

Affiliated partner engineering schools include Caltech, Columbia, Dartmouth, Washington University in St. Louis, RPI, and more. Two of the most frequent programs seen on the list are offered by the Columbia University and Dartmouth College. The Columbia program, typically a five year program in which students are at Columbia for the final two, gives liberal arts college students the opportunity to earn a BS degree from the Columbia University Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. In addition, most programs offer the option for students to complete a MS degree at Columbia in 6 years as an extension of the existing 3-2 program.

At Dartmouth, students have the opportunity to study at the Dartmouth College Thayer School of Engineering as part of a 2-1-1-1 program. Students will attend Dartmouth in their third and fifth years and will earn a BE degree in addition to their BA degree. Participating students may also have a secondary option to partake in a 3-2 program instead of the 2-1-1-1 program.

For each liberal arts college identified in the list, we've included the type of program offered, admit rate, mid 50th percentile test scores and a link for more details.

Interested in preparing for one of the most promising and in-demand career paths of our time? Look no further than Data Science!

An up-and-coming field, the term “Data Scientist” was coined as recently as 2008 and ranked the #1 Best Job in America by Glassdoor in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Studying "big data" will teach you how to ask important, real-world questions, collect data, organize information, translate results into solutions, and communicate your findings in ways that will effect positive change.

Using information compiled from U.S. News, Tech Republic, Discover Data Science, and the Data Science Degree Programs Guide, here's a list of schools with strong Data Science programs for undergrads. Some schools have a bit of information after the name indicating that the school only offers a minor, certificate program, concentration, or degree track in Data Science. Additionally, Data Science programs are called different things by different schools, including “Statistics and Data Science,” “Data Analytics,” and “Business Analytics.”

We’ve organized the schools from least to greatest admission rate, and we’ve also provided links to each school’s Data Science program to help you explore.

waitlist2019For those of you that have been waitlisted at one of your top choices, here's a list of 2018 waitlist statistics for several popular private and public schools, along with notification dates and latest status where available.

  • 71 percent of the schools admitted 10 percent or less of the students accepting a place on the wait list last year
