Through the Dual Degree Engineering Program, Saint Mary’s offers students the benefits of a liberal arts education while allowing them to pursue an engineering degree. Students spend their first (typically) three years at Saint Mary’s taking physical science, mathematics, humanities and social science courses. The final (typically) 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 in Liberal 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, Mechanical Engineering, and more. 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 both in the major courses and overall.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the Engineering Program at Saint Mary’s, students will have a working knowledge of the physical world and mathematics, and a developed ability to reason and communicate. These gains will allow the students to succeed in the specialized engineering courses taken after transferring and to work effectively as an engineer upon graduation.
