Engineering Dual Degree 3+2 Program

Applied Creativity

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 the School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL).

This program prepares students to become liberally educated engineers who can think critically, solve complex problems and demonstrate strong communication skills, while having the opportunity to become a licensed engineer. 

After their junior or senior year at KWU, students have the option to participate in a 3/2 or 4/2 program in which they enter WUSTL to earn a bachelor's degree in Engineering, or to participate in a 3/3 or 4/3 program in which they earn a master's degree in Engineering.

Students are required to maintain a 3.25 GPA, both in the sciences and overall, and to complete the required courses.

Programs of study include:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • System Science & Engineering

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 future 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 or by calling 785.833.4466.
