Harvey Mudd College was a unique experience with a chance to experience top notch academics and make some wonderful lifelong friends. HMC really prepared me for chemical engineering graduate school and the semiconductor industry.

I was probably not as prepared as I could have been for the difficulty of the math and science at Mudd so it took me about 2 years to catch up, but I stuck it out and I'm glad I did. Junior and Senior year were terrific as I found my niche in chemical engineering.

An unexpected bonus was the quality of the economics offerings. These courses really helped me with financial decisions and investments as an adult.

questionHi! I am interested in chemical engineering and the only drawback that I see to Harvey Mudd is that it doesn't offer specialized engineering degrees. How did it prepare you for chemical engineering? Are there ways to take specialized courses junior and senior year? Thanks!
