Affiliate School Information, Academics | Earlham College Skip to Content

Earlham has transfer or combined programs with three engineering schools. As noted in the overview, admission is only guaranteed for students who complete the required coursework with the grades and GPA specified by the affiliate school (usually 3.0-3.2). Each school is listed below, with the types of engineering they offer, details about the transfer requirements, and documents listing their required courses and the Earlham equivalents, where available. There are typically two sets of required courses, one set is required for all engineering majors, listed as "Foundation Courses" on the overview and three year planning pages, and then each major has additional courses that are required for that major. For example, a chemical engineering major would need more than General Chemistry, which is all that is required in the foundation courses. 

Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH)

Case Western offers degrees in biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, mechanical & aerospace, and systems & control engineering, as well as macromolecular science and engineering, materials science and engineering, and engineering physics. The document linked below lists only the foundation requirements, to see the requirements for specific majors, go to their dual degree website:

Columbia University (NY, NY)

Columbia offers degrees in biomedical, chemical, civil, computer,earth & environmental, electrical, and mechanical engineering, applied math, applied physics, computer science, engineering mechanics, and several majors in industrial engineering and operations research. The linked document contains all requirements for all majors (and is thus very long) with the Earlham College equivalent courses listed where available. The combined plan website has more information, including course descriptions:

Rensselaer Polytechnic University (Troy, NY)

Rensselaer is in the process of revising their 3-2 engineering entrance requirements, so the document linked is incomplete. RPI offers degrees in aeronautical, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer & systems, electrical, environmental, industrial & management, materials, mechanical, and nuclear engineering.
