Dual Degree - Engineering Program

At Fontbonne, we want to help you maximize your college experience. You have the opportunity to earn a bachelor of science degree in any major and in engineering in just five years.

Through Fontbonne’s partnerships with University of Missouri-Kansas City and Washington University in St. Louis, you may apply to the engineering school of your choice during your junior year, earning a Bachelor of Science degree from Fontbonne and a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from either the University of Missouri-Kansas City or Washington University, St. Louis.

Students usually follow either a 3-2 or a 4-2 plan, entering the engineering program after their junior or senior years. Students go on to complete four semesters of concentrated engineering study at the School of Computing and Engineering at University of Missouri-Kansas city or the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University. Each school retains its own tuition rates and separate financial aid packages.
