Augustana is afﬁliated with the engineering schools of the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), Purdue University, Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the University of Minnesota. In a coordinated degree program, a student can earn both a bachelor of arts degree from Augustana College and a technical bachelor of science degree in engineering from one of these universities.
These programs normally require three years in residence at Augustana followed by at least two years in residence at the engineering school. While at Augustana the student pursues a broad, general education in the liberal arts while simultaneously obtaining the basic training in mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science which is required for the study of engineering. Since it is expected that most general education requirements for the Augustana degree, together with a departmental major, will be completed before transferring to the university, the engineering advisor works closely with the student in planning and monitoring his or her academic progress. It is important that a student interested in this coordinated degree program meet with the advisor early in the ﬁrst year of college.
The criteria for transferring to a university as well as standards which transfer students must meet are established by the university. Augustana cannot guarantee acceptance by the university of the student planning to pursue one of these programs. For more information, see Coordinated Degree Programs and contact the engineering advisor.
