Engineering – Program Features
Students enrolled in the dual program spend a minimum of three years at Maryville and earn an undergraduate degree in Science. Students then enter the engineering program at either Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Missouri–Kansas City or Missouri University of Science and Technology for a minimum of two years and earn an undergraduate degree in engineering.
Programs of study for Washington University dual degree students are the same as those available to other students in the School of Engineering and Applied science and include: Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Systems Science & Engineering.
Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. As a group, engineers earn some of the highest average starting salaries among those holding bachelor’s degrees.
