Begin your engineering study at Northwestern and you’ll have the advantage of small classes and labs where you can get personal attention from your professors. You’ll work in a team-based, investigative environment, approaching problems much as you would in the real world. You’ll also receive a strong liberal arts education that will make you a better engineer by enabling you to think broadly and giving you a better understanding of the needs and concerns of the people impacted by your future projects.
Once you’ve completed foundational math, chemistry, computer science and physics courses at Northwestern, you’ll transfer to another college or university to finish your degree in such fields as aerospace, civil, chemical, electrical, mechanical or structural engineering.
University of Minnesota dual-degree program
You can graduate with 2 degrees in 5 years through our dual-degree program with the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering. After three years at Northwestern and two years at the University of Minnesota, you'll earn a B.A. in math or another field from Northwestern and a B.S. in engineering from the U of M, which offers specialized training in 10 engineering disciplines: aerospace, biomedical, biosystems, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, geological, materials science and mechanical.
