Engineering Program

Major, Dual-Degree/Joint-Degree

Enjoy a rich liberal arts education on your pathway to an engineering degree with Pacific's dual-degree engineering program.

Engineering is a "3/2" dual-dual degree program in which students earn two bachelor's degrees in five years, one in a natural sciences discipline from Pacific University and one in engineering from either Portland State University or Case Western Reserve University.

Students spend three years at Pacific to complete the core of a liberal arts degree, such as engineering science or physics, followed by two years at either Portland State University or Case Western Reserve University. Credits transfer between institutions to complete the two degrees.

Headlines

Cecilie Froehlich

A 1942 headline in The Campus, the undergraduate newspaper of City College of New York, set the tone: “First Female Invades Tech School Faculty,” it blared. Cecilie Froehlich led Pacific's math department until 1970 and was an outspoken advocate for recruiting women into the fields of math and engineering.

The Pacific University Center for Gender Equity will host a Girls Engineering Camp June 20 to 24 on the Forest Grove Campus. Open to girls ages 8 to 12, the daycamp will explore soft circuits, 3D printing and more.

 

Prospective college students desiring both a rich liberal arts education and an engineering degree can have both.
