In our "3-2" dual-degree program, you’ll spend the first three years at Elmhurst taking basic science and general education courses, followed by two years taking engineering courses at a cooperating university. This leads to both a B.S. in physics and a B.S. in engineering.
Elmhurst currently has formal arrangements of this kind with the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and the University of Southern California, but transfer to other engineering schools is possible as well. A "2-2" program leading to a single degree can also be arranged. In any case, initial course selection is the same as for the regular physics major, with subsequent courses depending on the area of engineering you plan to enter.
