W&J’s engineering and applied science dual-degree program allows students to begin their studies in an intensive liberal-arts environment, building a core of foundational skills such as oral and written communication and scientific and mathematical competency, before completing their studies at one of our partner institutions: Case Western Reserve University, Washington University in St. Louis, and Columbia University. At the the time of completion, students are awarded two degrees: a degree from W&J in any field of their choosing, and a BS degree in an engineering or applied science field from the partner school.

Program Features

  • Students may choose any of W&J’s 30+ academic majors.
  • Students work closely with W&J faculty to develop scientific problem-solving skills, as well as the communication skills and broad perspective necessary to be effective in modern engineering fields.
  • Students use the supportive, personalized W&J environment to develop skills and confidence needed for success in engineering.
  • Completion schedule is flexible; students may spend either three or four years at W&J. Most students complete the program in 3+2 years.
  • Washington University in St. Louis also offers a 3+3 degree that culminates in an MS degree.

Beyond the Classroom

Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.

The Engineering program is associated with the Department of Physics. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
