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.

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.
