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

Pacific University offers a "3/2" dual-dual degree in the engineering 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 another institution. We have transfer agreements with our partners Portland State University and Case Western Reserve University to streamline the process. 

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 in an engineering program.

These are the engineering specializations offered by our partner institutions:

Portland State University

  • Civil Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering

Dual-Degree Program at Case Western University

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Macromolecular Science & Engineering
  • Materials Science & Engineering
  • Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
  • Engineering Physics
  • Systems & Control Engineering
