The Citadel Military College of South Carolina offers several options for students intending on completing their Engineering Undergraduate Degree.
The Citadel takes pride in educating the "Whole Person" - mind, body, and spirit - and the cadet lifestyle is an important aspect of this educational process. From the freshman year until graduation, numerous opportunities and challenges are afforded cadets both within the cadet companies and through the many cadet organizations on campus.
The Citadel was among the very first colleges to host active duty Marines selected for the Marine Enlisted Commissioning Program (MECEP) with the first Marines reporting in the early 1970s. This proud tradition has continued ever since with The Citadel historically enjoying one of the largest Marine contingents in the country. Select Active Duty Soldiers may earn their degree The Citadel as well through the Army Green to Gold Program. Select sailors have been earning their degrees and commissions at The Citadel first through the Enlisted Commissioning Program (ECP) and now through the Seaman to Admiral 21 Program (STA 21). The proximity to the Navy’s Nuclear Power School in Goose Creek, Fort Jackson in Columbia, and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island are added bonuses.
The Citadel has traditionally opened its doors to qualified veteran students following almost every major military engagement since World War II. Nearly 3,500 veterans of World War II and the Korean conflict, most of who were civilian students, attended the College under the G.I. Bill. The program was discontinued in 1960 but was resumed in 1967.The veterans’ program was suspended in 1992 but was “recalled” to duty in 2010.
The Citadel School of Engineering currently offers various evening undergraduate programs which include Civil & Environmental Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Construction Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering to students who wish to complete their bachelor's degree. We offer transfer programs in cooperation with our partnering technical colleges as well as the opportunity for students who have attended colleges across the nation to apply for transfer admission.
