In a society faced with increasingly complex technological and humanistic problems, a liberal arts education contributes to the development of engineers.

Partnering with Columbia University in New York and Washington University in St. Louis, Davidson offers cooperative dual degree engineering programs.

Academic Goals of the Program

  • Establish a strong foundation in science, mathematics and computer science to facilitate lateral thinking and a deeper approach to engineering problem-solving.
  • Explore diverse dimensions of the human experience for service and leadership in the engineering profession.
  • Develop effective communication skills to support a clear and informative exchange of ideas.
  • Foster an appreciation of the social and ethical context of technological problems so that humane solutions can be identified and implemented.
  • Provide international and cultural experiences to inform multi-cultural teamwork and applications around the world.
  • Cultivate creativity for imaginative engineering design.
