Before transferring to the engineering school at which they will complete the work for their degree, pre-engineering students must complete the above program and:
- at least 92 credit hours of coursework at BW
- the BW core curriculum requirements.
Some of our affiliated schools have additional requirements. Pre-Engineering students should check with the schools in which they are interested, and with the BW pre-engineering advisor.
Binary Program in Engineering
The pre-engineering program prepares Baldwin Wallace students to earn an engineering degree through educational affiliations with the engineering school of Case Western Reserve University. Upon satisfactory completion of the three-year pre-engineering program at BW and the last two years of the engineering program at the engineering school, a student receives the Bachelor of Arts degree from BW and the Bachelor of Science in their chosen field of engineering from the engineering school. Students may choose instead the option of completing any of the B.S. science majors at BW, so long as they meet the engineering school’s entry requirements. Completion of the program at other recognized engineering schools is possible if prior approval of the BW pre-engineering advisor is obtained.
