  • Physics at Luther College.

Pre-Engineering

Luther offers preprofessional training in engineering consisting of courses in the liberal arts, mathematics, and sciences. The probability of success in the engineering field is closely related to an aptitude for mathematics and the physical sciences.

Three options are available to those who want to combine majors in physics, chemistry, mathematics, or computer science at Luther with degree programs in professional engineering:

  1. Complete the bachelor's degree at Luther and continue for a master's degree or doctorate in engineering
  2. Participate in a three-two dual-degree plan with Washington University or the University of Minnesota
  3. Pursue two or three years of pre-engineering at Luther and transfer into a university engineering program. Students who plan to transfer after two years at Luther should consult with the pre-engineering advisor since programs differ in their requirements.
