Coordinated Engineering Honors Program
The Coordinated Honors Engineering Program offers a course of study equivalent to the first two years at any engineering school. Students who maintain the required academic level are guaranteed transfer to one of the three coordinating schools — Polytechnic University, City College of New York School of Engineering, and the College of Staten Island Engineering Science Program — to complete their bachelor's degree in engineering. Coordinating Engineering students have also transferred to SUNY Stony Brook, University of Wisconsin, University of Michigan, Cooper Union, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Engineers work in a broad range of fields, including environmental protection, biotechnology, biomimetics, computer design, communications, robotics, aerospace, industrial chemistry and materials science. The Coordinated Engineering Program keeps students informed of rapid changes in the profession through the Engineering Club. The club invites working engineers to talk about their specialties and arranges visits to such facilities as Brookhaven National Laboratory, where cutting edge research is being done.
Students admitted as incoming freshmen, with Presidential Scholarship eligibility, will receive a Brooklyn College Foundation Presidential Scholarship that provides up to $4,000 annually for their two years of full-time undergraduate study in the Coordinated Engineering Program. The majority of students who transfer to Polytechnic University receive financial aid offers for their final two years of study. Those who transfer to City College or the College of Staten Island pay tuition as set by the City University of New York.
As members of the Honors Academy, Engineering Honors students take advantage of individual advising, faculty consultation, and early registration. In the Commons they find study facilities, computer access, academic, scholarship, internship and career opportunities, and, above all, intellectual stimulation among other talented students like themselves. Students applying to the Engineering Honors Program will also be considered for the Scholars Program.
