The Fessenden Honors in Engineering Program
Giazzoni, Michael
Honors in Practice, v14 p85-89 2018
Developing honors opportunities for students in engineering programs can be difficult, and the experience at the University of Pittsburgh is no exception. Often these students' degree requirements are so demanding that their opportunities for participating in honors experiences are severely limited. In each of the two semesters of their freshman year, freshman engineers at the University of Pittsburgh take the same courses: physics, chemistry, calculus, engineering computing, one elective, and a zero-credit, required engineering seminar that introduces them to their major choices. They enter their engineering majors in their sophomore year. [This article was originally printed in "Honors in Practice" v3 2007.]
