Engineering is the discipline of putting science and technology to work in designing, analyzing and building structures,machines, processes and systems. Supplementary disciplines ranging from economics and political science to literature and philosophy prepare flexible minds for dynamic and evolving careers. At Saint Francis, you can couple a liberal arts foundation with the right mathematical, scientific and analytical skills to pursue a career in engineering.
Through this accelerated “3+2” opportunity, you can earn two degrees in just five years. (Most students spend three years at Saint Francis, then transfer to an accredited engineering school, completing a B.A. in year four and a B.S. in year five.) You may also be interested in the following 4-year options offered entirely at Saint Francis University: Environmental Engineering or Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering.
Saint Francis University has cooperative engineering programs with Clarkson University of New York, The Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Pittsburgh. The programs are designed to prepare a student with a liberal arts background for a professional career in a branch of engineering.
After successfully completing three years in the pre-engineering program at Saint Francis University, the qualified student transfers to any of the three schools mentioned or to any school offering ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology)-accredited B.S. program in engineering to complete the final two years of the program. After successful completion of one full year in an engineering program at another school, the student will receive the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Engineering from Saint Francis University.
