Resources & Opportunities
Students interested in engineering pathways other than the chemical, electrical and mechanical pathways we offer as part of our B.S. may pursue a dual-degree pathway through our partnerships with other schools. For the dual-degree option, a student spends three or four years at Monmouth and two years at an associated engineering school for focused study.
A student may major in any field while at Monmouth, so long as they complete the courses that prepare them for the two years at an engineering school. Most students will choose a major at Monmouth that is associated or aligned with their engineering interests — so majors in physics, chemistry, engineering and mathematics would all be good choices.
Dual Degree in Engineering
Upon completion of the program, a student receives two bachelor degrees — a B.A. from Monmouth and a B.S. from the engineering school. Monmouth is affiliated with three excellent engineering programs at Washington University (St. Louis), the University of Southern California and Case-Western Reserve University.
Dual Degree in Atmospheric Sciences
Atmospheric science is the study of the workings of the atmosphere. This study includes meteorology. Monmouth is in the process of joining with the University of Arizona to create a unique program for students interested in atmospheric science.
Students are strongly encouraged to participate in one or more off-campus programs during the summer or academic year. Summer programs include Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs that run at universities, national laboratories and colleges. These programs — paid internships that last about 10 weeks — give students an excellent opportunity to learn and do engineering in a different way.
