Engineering Pre-professional Program

Future engineers at Nebraska Wesleyan University can take advantage of an accelerated dual-degree program connecting NWU students with Washington University in St. Louis or the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

With this program, you can study science and the liberal arts for three years at NWU, then transfer to one of these schools for two years of engineering studies. You’ll then graduate with a Bachelor of Science from NWU as well as a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the partnering school.

With two bachelor’s degrees from two highly respected universities, you’re sure to capture the attention of top graduate programs in engineering.

The dual-degree program prepares you for success in the field by giving you both a liberal arts foundation and an engineering specialization. The program encourages engineers to be aware of society’s changing values and priorities, and to be concerned about the effects science and technology have on our environment and quality of life.

The variety of programs at our partner schools gives you great choices in your engineering specialization.

Engineer a Resourceful Career

Physics major Brock Taute took full advantage of all Nebraska Wesleyan had to offer graduating in 2015. Since then, he received a master's degree in civil and environmental engineering from Stanford University, became a senior design engineer and created a start-up to enable access to reliable and affordable energy.
