Comparison of the Engineering Honors Concentration (EHC) and Haslam Scholars Program (HSP)

There is enough similarity between the requirements for these two programs that engineering students should be able to complete both.

Course Requirements

Haslam Scholars who complete the HSP coursework will satisfy 6 hours of the non-STEM 100-200 level honors coursework for their EHC.

Breadth Requirements

Students working towards an Engineering Honors Concentration must have approved experiences in two of the following areas. One of these must be at an Intermediate level and the other at an Introductory level.

  1. Research
  2. Interdisciplinary Coursework
  3. Entrepreneurship
  4. Global Experience
  5. Service Learning
  • Haslam Scholars who study abroad with their cohort will satisfy the EHC Global Experience requirement at an Introductory Level.
  • Haslam Scholars who complete the HSP coursework will satisfy the EHC Interdisciplinary Coursework requirement at an Intermediate Level.
