Many students are interested in engineering as a career, but are confused by the many different fields of engineering. To help these students, the Allen School of Engineering and Technology admits engineering students who are undecided about a major into the category General Engineering.
While general engineering is not a major and students at Trine University cannot earn a degree in general engineering, this program allows students to make progress towards an engineering degree while exploring the opportunities afforded by the various engineering disciplines.
General Engineering students are not required to select an engineering major until they register for their fourth semester. This allows more than two semesters to explore the vast field of engineering and find the field that's right for you.
Living Learning Communities
Trine University offers interest-specific Living Learning Communities (LLCs) where students live together in a dedicated area of the Larry and Judy Reiners Residence Hall and Stadium Hall. The Women in Engineering LLC is for first-year majors in the ASOET, and offers opportunities for team-building, mentoring and social activities. Find out more on the LLC page.
