Dual Degree Engineering

Students in this program receive a B.A. from Augustana (in a major of their choice) and a B.S. in the chosen engineering specialty from the engineering school.  Students in the program are guaranteed admission to the engineering school when recommended by Augustana. The particular preparatory courses that must be completed at Augustana depend upon which engineering school and which specific engineering program students wish to enter. A list of program areas sorted by school is shown below. There are three main requirements for the dual-degree program:

  1. Complete the Augustana general education requirements. Capstone requirement (Area 4.3) is waived if the student is leaving Augustana after 3 years. 
  2. Complete a major at Augustana (some engineering courses may count toward a physics major).
  3. Complete the pre-requisites specified by the particular school and/or engineering program.

Most students can complete these items in three years without scheduling difficulty.
