# Course Requirements for Engineering Plans

Specific course prerequisites for Dual Degree Engineering programs of study at an affiliated school.

All dual-degree programs require that the student complete the general education requirements of Augustana University. A major must also be completed at Augustana, but it is possible for some departments to allow one or more courses to be transferred back from the engineering school in order to complete major requirements. These courses must be relevent to the Augustana major content area. Every effort is made to maintain a current list of course requirements on this page, but students are strongly encouraged to check with the partner institutions for the most up-to-date information.

**The following courses should be completed at Augustana University if you wish to participate in the dual degree engineering program with ****Washington University in St. Louis****.** A student's GPA must exceed 3.25 in both their technical coursework (science and mathematics classes) and in their overall coursework. A minimum of 60 credit hours of transferable college credit are needed (courses with grades below C- do not transfer).

**All B.S. degrees in engineering require: **

MATH 151 — Calculus I

MATH 152 — Calculus II

MATH 153 — Calculus III

Humanities and Social Science: No fewer than 15 semester hours in approved areas; this sequence must include at least six semester hours in humanities and three semester hours in social sciences.

English Language Proficiency Requirement: Proficiency in English is required of all applicants. International applicants who will not have a minimum of three years of documented study at an English-speaking institution in a country where English is the primary language of daily living are required to submit official TOEFL IBT scores to Wash U.

**Biomedical Engineering also requires: **

**There are three Master's degree routes for Dual-Degree Students at Washington University in St. Louis. **

**1. Engineering Undergraduate Degree (2-year option):** Students enroll into the WUSTL Engineering Dual Degree Program as traditional undergraduate Dual Degree students, taking two years to earn an undergraduate engineering degree. After completing one year at WUSTL, qualified students may optionally apply for admission into an engineering master's program. Admitted students are classified as graduate students during their third year at WUSTL; these students may be eligible for graduate aid during the third year based upon their first-year undergraduate WUSTL GPA.

**2. Engineering Undergraduate & Graduate Degrees (3 year option):** After completing 90 credits at Augustana, students enroll directly into both an engineering master's program and an undergraduate engineering program at WUSTL. Students earn both engineering degrees and are classified as graduate students for all three year at WUSTL. A minimum GPA of 3.25 is typically required for entry into the program. For all students admitted, tuition is reduced: 50% the first year at WUSTL, 55% the second year and 60% for the third year.

**3. Direct Admission into a Master's Program**: After completing a non-engineering undergraduate degree from an affilated school, qualified students may enroll directly into an engineering master's program at WUSTL (no undergraduate engineering degree is earned). Graduate financial aid is based on the student's GPA at Augustana; the award amount operates on a sliding scale: 3.20 is the minimum GPA to begin receiving a 10% tuition scholarship, with up to 50% of tuition awarded for those with a 3.80 GPA or higher. Students should apply directly using the online application form.

The minimum undergraduate preparation for all WUSTL Master's degree programs may be found on their web page.

**The following courses should be completed at Augustana University if you wish to participate in the Combined Plan engineering program with ****Columbia University****.** In addition to the course requirements below, students must be enrolled full time at Augustana University for the past two years and have an overall and pre-engineering GPA of 3.30 or higher as calculated by Columbia. The grade for each science or engineering pre-requisite class must be 3.0 or better on the first attempt. All Augustana degree and major requirements must be completed by the end of the spring semester of application to Columbia. Students need a favorable recommendation letter from the Combined Plan liaison, and science instructor, and a math instructor and a certification of English proficiency as drected by the Columbia website.

Second, a student may enroll in the SDSU statics course (EM 214) during one of their semesters at Augustana.
