Students spend their first three years at Saint Mary’s taking physical science, mathematics, humanities and social science courses. The final two years are completed at an engineering school approved by the program’s director. Upon completion of all academic requirements students are granted two degrees: a bachelor of arts from Saint Mary’s College and a bachelor of science in engineering from the university they have chosen for completing the final two years of the program. The full range of engineering specializations can be studied, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Saint Mary’s has a transfer agreement with Washington University in St. Louis which guarantees admission to our students who have a grade point average of at least 3.25.
The 3+2 Engineering Program combines the benefits of a liberal arts education with the focused studies necessary to pursue an engineering degree.
