As a pre-engineering student at BVU, you’ll have access to a dual degree engineering program partnered with Washington University in St. Louis. This partnership provides the unique chance to earn a degree from BVU and an engineering degree. Because BVU’s pre-engineering program is not a major, students often choose majors in physics, biochemistry, computer science, and chemistry.

Uniquely BVU

Students who graduate with this major can pursue careers in:

  • Aeronautical engineering
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Computer engineering
  • Chemical engineering
  • Biophysical researching
  • Biomedical engineering

Pre-engineering students complete three years at BVU and two years at Washington State University in St. Louis, Missouri (WUST). After successful completion of two years of full-time study at WUST, students will be awarded a bachelor’s degree from BVU, as well as a bachelor’s degree in engineering from WUST. WUST students also continue their education and earn their master’s degree in one year.

BVU’s partnership with WUST puts students on a special track where they are supported by a dual-degree office and move together with other students as a cohort.

Talk to Us

We'd love to get to know you. Tell us a bit about yourself, and we'll be in touch with the scoop about BVU.

Students get a lot of one-on-one or small group interactions with their professors, including experience with a 3D printer and robotics lab.

Students engage in a high-quality research project that gives them problem solving and analytical skills for careers or graduate programs.

All advanced physics courses are delivered in a flipped format, helping students secure internships at NASA and the Monticello Nuclear Power Plant.
