Engineering

The engineering track gives students three years to steep in the rich liberal arts and small-school environment of Pacific University before completing specialized engineering coursework at Case Western Reserve University. Ultimately, students earn two degrees in five year and gain a wealth of experience and perspective.

Program Highlights

  • Enjoy the benefits of Pacific's rich liberal arts experience, including social responsibility, communication skills, real-world application of problem-solving skills, as well a broad platform for future personal and professional growth
  • Gain personal attention and the supportive environment of Pacific's small-school atmosphere
  • Spend three years at Pacific to complete the core of a liberal arts degree, such as applied science or physics, and begin upper-level courses in science and math
  • Complete two years in the Case School of Engineering, one of the nation's top 50 graduate engineering programs and top 10 biomedical engineering programs (U.S. News & World Report)
  • Potentially earn a dedicated scholarship for dual-degree students at Case Western, providing $2,500 per semester for four semesters at Case

Courses

Applied science and physics are the most common choices of majors for Pacific students preparing for the 3:2 engineering program. However, students also could choose from a host of courses or programs in the School of Natural Sciences, including biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, exercise science and mathematics. Students also have access to Pacific's complete liberal arts program and can enrich their undergraduate experience with social sciences, art, music, dance and theatre. At Case Western, engineering specialties include aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, mechanical and systems engineering.
