This dual-degree program offers a unique opportunity for students. The engineering degree from Washington University provides the technical skills necessary to analyze and solve many of the real-world problems that face civilization today, while the Creighton degree, with a strong emphasis on liberal arts, provides the “soft” skills that are necessary for success in the modern work environment.
The dual degree in physics and engineering begins with three years of study at Creighton University with a focus on three areas:
- The fundamental concepts in each of the major areas of physics
- Fundamental laboratory, data analysis and problem-solving skills
- How to effectively present the results of quantitative studies
The final two years at Washington University will focus on:
- How to apply the principles of math and science to real-world problems
- How to design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
- The impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context
The engineering concentrations at Washington University are:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Computer Science
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Systems Science and Engineering

In order to be eligible for admission to Washington University’s Combined Program in Engineering, students must complete the following Creighton University courses:
- Mathematics: Calculus I, II, and III, and Applied Linear Algebra and Diff. Eq. (MTH 245, 246, 347, & 350 or MTH 245, 249, 349, & 350)
- Physics: two semesters of calculus-based General Physics with lab (PHY 213 & 214 or PHY 221 & 222, with PHY 205 & 206; PHY 201 and 202 would not be acceptable)
- Chemistry 203 & 204
- Computer Science CSC 221
- Contemporary Composition (ENG 15x)
- Completion of the Foundations and Explorations levels of the Magis Core, including at least one course in the social sciences
- Completion of a minimum of 96 credit hours of coursework (a minimum of 90 hours must be transferrable with a grade of C- or better) with a cumulative GPA > 3.25.
To receive your Creighton degree, you will also need to complete the Integrations level of the Magis Core, as well as a major. The major most compatible with this program is the Applied Physical Analysis Major (Applied Physical Analysis BS Curriculum), although other majors are possible.
