Sample Plan of Study

Math class blackboard

The below scenario is an example of the classes an engineering student at Albion College would take to successfully complete the program in three years. Exact courses vary with engineering discipline and must be selected in consultation with an adviser. This schedule assumes no advanced placement transfer credit. If such AP credit exists, the below schedule would be more flexible.
