Dual Degree Engineering

Expand your study opportunities through the Dual Degree Engineering program at Regis. The dual degree program allows our students to combine a Jesuit liberal arts education with a career in engineering.

Expand your opportunities.

Dual Degree Engineering students begin as any other Regis student, completing the Regis core and working toward a major.  After completing a Regis major and the engineering prerequisite courses, Dual Degree students go to Washington University in St. Louis for two years of focused study of engineering. At the end Dual Degree Engineering students will have a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree from Regis (in the chosen major) and a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from Washington University.

Communication skills, the breadth of knowledge and the ability to look at problems from many different perspectives make a powerful combination with a technical degree like engineering. Many students choose to pursue the Dual Degree Engineering track because, while they are interested in engineering, they are not ready to focus exclusively on engineering. Such students keep the path to an engineering career open while exploring all the diversity that a Jesuit liberal arts school has to offer. 

It is possible to combine any Regis College major with the Dual Degree Engineering program, though some have more overlap with the engineering prerequisites than others, with mathematics being the most relevant. The Regis portion of the program typically takes four years, although it is sometimes possible to complete it in three with careful planning in consultation with the Dual Degree Engineering advisor. Students that maintain a GPA of 3.25 or better at Regis have had great success completing the program.
