Engineering Science Degree Program Overview

Benefit from the richness of a liberal arts education grounded in Christian, Catholic, Benedictine values, while gaining the technological skills to pursue a wide range of careers in engineering. In the engineering science dual degree program, you can earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Mary and a Bachelor of Engineering degree or Master of Science degree from the University of Minnesota.

How the Engineering Science Dual Degree Program Works

The University of Mary has teamed with the University of Minnesota to offer engineering science students a unique diversity of opportunities. You have several options for completing your degree:

  • Complete three years of study–including a comprehensive liberal arts program and the required pre-engineering courses in math and science–at the University of Mary, then transfer to the University of Minnesota to complete your degree.
  • Complete your Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Mary and then transfer to the University of Minnesota to complete your Bachelor of Engineering degree.
  • Complete your bachelor’s degree at the University of Mary and then earn a Master of Science degree from the University of Minnesota.

Whether to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree program will depend on your individual goals, your area of study, and whether your field of engineering requires professional certification. Your University of Mary advisor will help you plan a course of study to meet your objectives and answer any questions you may have.

Engineering Science Requirements:

A total of 40 semester credits of mathematics and science courses at the 200 level or above. The University of Mary’s affiliation agreement with the University of Minnesota allows for a variety of different engineering majors. Because of the diverse requirements for these majors, the student should note a few pertinent guidelines:

  • Students must build a solid mathematics back-ground, especially in calculus.
  • Students will need to build solid computer skills.
  • The curriculum includes courses in chemistry, biology and physics.

Even as one of the most affordable private universities in the nation, the University of Mary does offer a variety of scholarships. In fact, 99% of main campus undergraduate students receive some form of scholarship! 

Some scholarships are available for specific academic programs, such as nursing, while other scholarships are available for certain student populations, such as military and veteran students

We strongly encourage you to contact your personal admissions representative to discover all of the options that might be available to you. In many cases, a program specific scholarship is just one component of a complete financial aid package. 

Our admissions professionals will work together with our Office of Financial Assistance to ensure that you get the best financial aid package possible to finance your education. 

Acceptance at the University of Mary does not automatically qualify you to pursue a program in one of the academic programs of study. Application requirements are specific to each major or academic program.
