Engineering Dual Degree
Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Two Degrees)
Program completed through cooperative partnership with the College of Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities. Students in this program earn two degrees completed through both courses at Northwestern and at the University of Minnesota.
Typically, students study full time for two years at the University of Minnesota. Some additional course work, such as summer school courses, may be required. Upon completion of the engineering degree requirements at the University, a student earns a bachelor's degree in engineering from the University of Minnesota and a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics or engineering sciences from Northwestern College.
The emphasis that a student elects to pursue, either applied mathematics or engineering sciences, will depend on the student's interests and the requirements for a particular engineering discipline. Students interested in the Dual Degree program are strongly encouraged to meet with a Northwestern College engineering advisor for guidance.
To enroll in any PHY or EGR course, students must receive a grade of "C" or better in all prerequisite courses. Courses with grades below "C" must be repeated.
Students may select courses at Northwestern College to meet the lower-division requirements of another college or university which offers a degree in some field of engineering. A listing of such courses is given below. In addition, the student should select courses to satisfy the core curriculum requirements of the institution to which he/she will be transferring. The student is requested to secure program requirements of his/her intended engineering institution in order to work effectively with the pre-engineering advisor at Northwestern College. In addition, pre-engineering students are highly encouraged to enroll in those Bible courses that will transfer to other institutions.
