PROGRAM OVERVIEW The Department of Physics and Astronomy administers a Three-Two or Four-Two Dual Degree cooperative engineering program. Students interested in the program must consult with the chair of the department before registration.
Students in this program take all the general education courses at Drake as well as three years of physics or astronomy courses following the B.S. or B.A. curricula and then, upon satisfactory completion of the coursework, transfer to Washington University to finish a program in an engineering field of their choice. At the end they acquire two degreees, one in physics or astronomy and one in engineering. Typical engineering fields include electrical, electronic, mechanical, computer, civil, chemical (this may require more chemistry courses), and biomedical (this may require biophysics or some biology courses).
Students are eligible for financial aid at both institutions.
