Professor: Cannon (engineering liaison)
The dual-degree engineering program combines the strengths of a liberal arts education and specialization in a field of engineering. Students receive a broad education that includes stronger training in the basic sciences and communication skills in addition to specialized training in a particular field of engineering.
Students spend three years at W&J and two years at an engineering school. Upon successful completion of the program, the student receives a bachelor of arts degree from W&J and a bachelor of science degree in an engineering field from the partner school. Cooperative programs in engineering have been established with Columbia University in New York City, Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. However, students may choose to complete their engineering studies at other schools with engineering programs.
Students must complete W&J's degree requirements. Normally, some of the requirements are fulfilled by transferring courses back from the engineering school. However, consistent with W&J's degree requirements, no more than three courses may be earned off campus in the major.
To be guaranteed acceptance at affiliated schools, students must
• Have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or better (3.25 for Washington University);
• Have a grade point average of 3.00 (3.25 for Washington University) or better in approved courses in chemistry, mathematics, physics, and computer programming; and
• Complete any courses required by the individual schools.
• There are slight variations in requirements between schools and between different fields in engineering. Courses required for all engineering fields are CHM 160 , 170 , ITL 102 , MTH 151 , 152 , 208 , 308 , and PHY 107 , 108 , and 209 . PHY 234 may be substituted for MTH 308 .
Students should work closely with the engineering liaison in order to ensure a smooth transition to the affiliated schools and to assure completion of W&J graduation requirements.
