Engineering Technology, B.S. (Contract Major)


Students having educational and/or career goals and objectives that are not met specifically by one of the school’s traditional majors may pursue a contract major. Such a major may involve educational experiences in more than one school or college of the University. Contracts that involve advanced or specialized courses from more than one college are considered cross-college contract programs and must have the explicit approval of both schools or colleges.

A contract major is designed by the dean of CETA (or the designee of the dean), the student, and such faculty as may be needed to ensure the creation of a program of study leading to learning outcomes consistent with the mission of both the college and the University of Hartford. The agreement, or contract, is documented in written form, approved by the dean (and the dean of any other college as described above), and accepted by the student. In addition to the listing of required and elective courses, the contract includes a delineation of the expectations for student progress (e.g., grade point average, major standards, course completion rates, etc.).

Contract majors must conform to all University-level requirements, including but not limited to

  1. Minimum 120 credits for the baccalaureate degree
  2. The final 30 credits in residence
  3. Minimum of 40 credits of general education, including 12 credits in the All-University Curriculum (one course from four different areas), 6 credits of English composition, with the remaining credits representing the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, the arts, and mathematics
  4. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0

Students pursuing a contract major in technology receive the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.S.). The major appearing on the student’s transcript is engineering technology.
