Each year, 25 to 30 incoming engineering students are selected to the University’s Honors Program. No special application is required, however, interested students should apply to Villanova by November 1 to be considered and must indicate their interest on the member section of the Common Application. Students admitted to Villanova are invited to the Honors Program within a week of their acceptance to the University.
Ten Honors classes are required to earn an Engineering Honors degree, at least four of which must be in engineering.

“As an Honors student, you will have a much smaller interdisciplinary engineering course your first semester, and you’ll learn your fellow students’ strengths and weaknesses, which will help improve everything you work on. The Honors Program will help you go further than you thought you could, with a constant support system in place and new friends along the way. And it’s also given me the opportunity to study abroad this summer in Dublin!”
