Most of our engineering-bound graduates pursue a graduate degree, as opposed to participating in a dual-degree program. A bachelor's degree in science (such as physics or chemistry) plus a master's degree in engineering is a great way to become a practicing engineer. The bachelor's degree from a liberal arts college like Luther provides you with a strong background in problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and ethical reasoning.
Recent graduates have completed advanced degrees in chemical engineering, nuclear engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer engineering, environmental engineering, and biomedical engineering. Another closely related program is engineering physics.
Most students entering these graduate programs receive assistantships or fellowships.
