student life (Pgs. 25 - 34)


Hanover students thrive in hands-on environments that challenge them to apply their newfound knowledge and skills in meaningful ways. With 33 majors offered, and the flexibility to mix and match to create your own if you desire, Hanover’s curriculum stretches to meet the individual needs of our students.

93 percent of Hanover students live on campus for all four years of their education, so it is important to know that you’re selecting more than an academic program. Whether you’re out exploring our expansive campus, hiking to one of the waterfalls, attending a concert on Donner lawn or taking in the locally-owned shops of downtown Madison, you’ll have no problem maintaining that all-important work/life balance.





admission/Financial aid (Pgs. 35 - 38)

Our people make Hanover special, and it all starts with the students we admit. Our holistic admission process carefully selects applicants who seek to be actively engaged in their education and community. Once admitted, the College makes substantial investments in the success of all our future students through merit-based scholarships and/or need-based aid. We work hard to meet the individual financial needs of each of our students and their families.




This includes students either employed or continuing their education 7 months after graduation.

This places Hanover at the 98 percentile among colleges nation-wide

engineering OUR MISSION The Engineering Program at Hanover College educates competent and responsible engineers within a liberal arts environment so that they can pursue careers or further study and make a positive contribution to society. The program balances a focus on engineering fundamentals, practical applications, and broad socioeconomic perspectives. You will be challenged to think critically and communicate effectively and benefit from a breadth of study not typically found in other engineering programs. DEGREE PATHS AND CAREERS The College offers two engineering degree paths: 1. A bachelor’s degree in engineering (ENGR) with one of the following concentrations: • Mechanical • Electrical • Electromechanical • Computer • Geological or, without noted specialization (general engineering). The engineering curriculum is designed for those who wish to pursue career paths in engineering or applied science through research, teaching, industry, or entrepreneurial engineering. 2. A bachelor’s degree in engineering science (ENGS). Engineering science provides an interdisciplinary education in mathematics, science, and engineering. It also encourages students to incorporate diverse cognate areas, such as business, economics, or arts and design, so they can effectively pursue careers in public service, business, management, or entrepreneurship.

We are looking forward to the pipeline of fresh, new talent coming from Hanover and doing what we can to support the new program.” – Dominic Grote, President of Grote Industries


IN THE HANOVER ENGINEERING PROGRAM YOU CAN: • Join an internship or a co-op and receive academic credit. • Learn in small, dynamic classes with experts one-on-one. • Broaden your horizons through visits and guest lectures by our industry partners. • Combine engineering with business through our established Business Scholars Program (BSP). • Benefit from the integration of engineering with science and the liberal arts. • Study abroad, engage in a co-op, and even double major, all in only four years! ENGINEERING SUBJECTS Exploring Engineering Electrical Circuit Analysis Electronic Circuits Materials Science Introduction to Engineering and Design Linear Systems Analysis Engineering Electromagnetics Semiconductor Electronics Digital Systems Signals, Systems, and Communications VLSI Design Computer Systems Architecture Mechanical Engineering Tools Instruments, Measurement, and Statistics Mobile Robotics Numerical Computation Mechanics of Materials Fluid Dynamics Thermofluids Engineering Control Theory and Design Engineering Design and Manufacturing Geomechanics and Geotechnics Geological Engineering and Design EXPERIENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES You can earn academic credit for an internship or a more extensive co-op experience. A four-month co-op extends through the one-month spring term and the subsequent summer. Therefore, you can complete one or even two co-ops and still graduate in four years. The internship/co-op program engages national and international corporations. It also has a strong local business representation, including Grote Industries Inc., Arvin Sango Inc., Vehicle Service Group LLC., and SuperATV, so you can have the option to avoid relocation during your work or research experience.

Being paid to work, while learning to work

Your major + business. You don’t have to choose between a major that you are truly passionate about and a business education that some consider a more-direct route to a well-paying job. We combine both. Master the art of business: Take courses in management, marketing, finance and strategy that boosts your resume. Get experience: Every Business Scholar completes an individualized paid project-based internship. Build soft skills: Keep the job you worked so hard to get by speaking and writing articulately and working effectively with others. You’ll obtain those skills through our liberal arts core classes.

Cross-cultural education for a diverse world

Templeton scholarship (full-tuition) The Benjamin Templeton Scholarship honors students with outstanding academic records who have worked to build strong high school communities by bridging gaps among economically, socially and racially diverse groups. Templeton Scholars will have demonstrated significant interest in issues of diversity education, human rights and social justice.

Our population truly spans the globe. That being said, our diversity goes deeper than students from multiple continents. Our Office of Multicultural Affairs exists to provide education, support and advocacy for both our international students and our students of color. Its very own cross-cultural board of faculty and student representation meets monthly to encourage co-programming among our diverse groups, inspiring celebrations like the International Banquet.

LGBTQ+ Center The LGBTQ+ Center works to strengthen and sustain an inclusive campus community at Hanover College. The Center welcomes people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions through support, educational resources, and advocacy. The Center works in partnership with other diversity efforts on campus and is supported by Love Out Loud and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Hanover’s large selection of extra-curricular clubs guarantees that students will find a cohort that suits their individuality and that will inspire them with another perspective. A sampling of our clubs: • International Club • Kaliedescope • Love Out Loud

• Interfaith Council • Sister to Sister • People for Peace

• Social Justice for Palestine • Feminist Club

• MLK Marade • Freedom to Marry • Safe Zone Training • W. Kamau Bell • Lacey Green
