Lafayette offers five engineering majors, yet many students are not sure which is right for them. Our Introduction to Engineering course is designed with this in mind. You have the opportunity to learn about the different disciplines of study, enabling you to make an informed decision about your major. If you are unsure whether or not you would like to study Engineering at Lafayette College, we encourage you to take the recommended first semester engineering courses. It is easier to switch from Engineering to another major because the courses will count towards other majors. It is more difficult to come in to Engineering without taking the foundation courses.
