Episode 61: What to Look for in an Engineering School

February 20, 2023

What comes to mind when you think of the word engineering? A hardhat and paper blueprints, a computer with complex modeling software, or maybe a bunch of wires, gears and other technical parts? Engineering can involve all of those things and so much more.

When looking for the engineering major you might want to study in college, you might find that they're grouped together in a school of engineering within a larger university. On this episode of College Admissions Insider, we're diving deep into this educational track — from the types of professions the engineering field includes to what a general engineering curriculum might look like and far beyond.

Our guests are three faculty members from Bucknell’s own College of Engineering: Biomedical Engineering Professor, Eric Kennedy; Mechanical and Chemical Engineering Professor, Wendy Wright; and Chemical Engineering Professor Kat Wakabayashi.
