Methodist University offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering taught in small classes in a supportive environment. However, some students may choose to major in an area such as mathematics, chemistry, biology, or computer science and then go on to graduate school in engineering. Other students may decide to complete their first two years at Methodist University and then transfer to a larger school to complete their engineering degree. There are courses in engineering as well as mathematics, chemistry, and physics courses that are common to all engineering programs and graduate degree pre-requisites that students interested in a pre-engineering program instead of the full Bachelor of Science degree may take at Methodist University. Typically, these students will complete course sequences in calculus, calculus-based introductory physics and chemistry in addition to courses in engineering and/or computer science. They may also complete a large proportion of the general education requirements for engineering. These students should talk to Dr. Bauer in the Department of Engineering for course options that fit their educational plans in engineering.
