Engineering (Dual Degree) B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs (by school)

The Engineering Duel Degree program is a joint degree program of Maryville with the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of Washington University. There are three areas of study in this program:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Computer Science & Computer Engineering

Students in this program will spend the first three years at Maryville acquiring a firm foundation in chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and/or biology, as well as a broad background in the humanities and social sciences. A GPA of 3.25 or better, both overall and in mathematics and science courses, is normally required. Students then continue with two years of study at Washington University. They also have an option available to earn a graduate degree in engineering. A high percentage of students of this program entering Washington University received some form of need-based assistance.

The Dual Degree study is an attractive alternative to traditional engineering curricula, which are often highly structured and require longer than four years to complete. The advantages of this degree program include the ability to complete degrees in two diverse areas, under predictable conditions and the opportunity to use the supportive, personalized environment at Maryville to develop the skills and confidence needed for success in engineering. Students earn a Science, B.S. from Maryville upon completion of degree requirements.
