These specialized degree programs provide you the opportunity to take a rigorous course of study in mathematics and the physical sciences to prepare you for advanced engineering studies. There are four tracks to choose from: a 3+2 program dual degree, a 3+3 masters at WashU, a 4+1 accelerated masters at MTU, or other engineering schools accredited by ABET.
3+2 Dual-Degree Engineering (B.S.)
Study 3 years at Northland and 2 at the Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, for bachelor of science degrees from both institutions. Take three years of pre-engineering course work and general education at Northland. Then focus two additional years in fields like biomedical, computer science & engineering, data science, electrical & systems, energy, environmental & chemical, or mechanical engineering & material science. By following the dual-degree engineering track, you will get your Northland degree when your Washington University program is completed.
3+3 Master’s Degree Program (M.S.)
Study 3 years at Northland and 3 at the Washington University in St. Louis for bachelor of science degrees from both institutions and a master’s degree. After completing 90 credits from NC, students enroll directly into both an engineering master’s program and an undergraduate engineering program at WashU.
4+1 Accelerated Masters in Environmental Engineering Science (M.S.)
Complete 4 years at Northland, then an additional one year of studies in environmental engineering science at Michigan Technology University in Houghton, Michigan. The accelerated program offers a fast-track option to your master’s degree at one of the country’s best-regarded engineering schools and the chance to specialize in air quality, subsurface remediation, surface water quality, water and wastewater treatment, and water resources. This track is available to students pursuing courses in the pre-engineering track and majoring in biology, chemistry, climate science, math, natural resources, or water science.
Other Engineering Schools
Students may choose other engineering schools accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) with the approval of the Academic Dean of the College.
