Two options are available for the pre-engineering track:
- Students enter a 3-2 program wherein they spend three years at Quincy University taking the pre-engineering core sequence and general liberal arts courses. They then spend two years at Washington University, St. Louis (assuming a strong grade point average), in a comprehensive engineering curriculum. At the end of five years, the students receive the Baccalaureate degree in Physical Science from Quincy University and a degree in Engineering from Washington University. An added year at Washington University would lead to a Master's degree.
- Students complete a two-year general education/pre-engineering sequence at Quincy University and transfer to engineering schools of choice. The majority of students in this program have transferred either to the University of Illinois at Urbana, Bradley University, or the University of Missouri at either Columbia or Rolla. No degree is awarded from Quincy University. Students should keep informed of the transfer admissions requirements of the engineering school of choice.
