Physics Major - Engineering Specialization, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (Majors, Minors, Certificates)

This is a joint five-year program leading to a degree from CWU and an engineering degree from another institution. Completion of the three-year program specified below will generally prepare the student to enter the third and fourth year courses of most engineering programs. After transfer to an accredited engineering program, completion of 26 credits of upper division engineering courses from that program and completion of Central’s graduation requirements will satisfy the requirements for this degree.

Special Requirements:
While early consultation with Central’s pre-engineering advisor is mandatory to ensure that specific additional requirements of particular pre-engineering curricula are also satisfied, it is solely the student’s responsibility to apply and gain admission to an institution offering degrees in engineering. It is the individual student’s responsibility to submit an official transcript of the work completed after leaving CWU and to request awarding of the B.S. physics - engineering specialization degree.
