3+2 Engineering Dual Degree Program

You are here

The 3+2 Engineering Dual Degree Program is an attractive alternative to traditional engineering curricula, offering students the opportunity to earn a liberal arts degree from Kansas Wesleyan University and an engineering degree from Washington University in St. Louis. Following three or four years of studies at Kansas Wesleyan, students will head to St. Louis to continue their coursework at Washington University.

Washington University’s Dual Degree programs of study lead to the same degrees offered to the other students in its School of Engineering & Applied Science. These include Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Systems Science & Engineering.

Program graduates are "liberally educated engineers," with strong oral and written communication skills, problem-solving skills and teamwork skills.

Other advantages include:

  • opportunity to complete degrees in two diverse areas
  • extra time to pursue other academic, athletic, or extracurricular interests
  • supportive, personalized learning environment of a small liberal arts institution to build skills and confidence needed for success in an engineering program and career
  • environment for acquiring scientific problem-solving skills needed to be effective in today's technologically-oriented society

The KWU Liaison for this Washington University Dual Degree Program is Dr. Kristin L. Kraemer. Assistant Professor of Physics. Students interested in knowing more about this program may contact Dr. Kraemer directly at kristin.kraemer@kwu.edu or by calling 785-827-5541, ext. 2416.
