The department offers several types of opportunities for students wishing to pursue a career in engineering. Two of these options involve dual degree programs (the 3/2 and 4/1) in which the student will study at Moravian University for several years and then transfer to the associated institution to finish up the program of study, resulting in a degree being granted from each institution. A third option involves simply continuing graduate study at an engineering institution of the students choosing upon successful completion of the undergraduate program at Moravian University. In all cases, while the student is at Moravian University, the program of study will be as a physics major. Areas of engineering study for the third option are only limited by the areas offered at the graduate institution, those for the 3/2 and 4/1 are limited and as indicated below.
3/2 Undergraduate Program
In cooperation with Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, Moravian University offers the following cooperative engineering programs:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Computer Science
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Systems Science and Engineering
Upon successful completion of three years at Moravian University and upon recommendation of the University, a student in the cooperative engineering program may apply for transfer to the appropriate engineering department of Washington University. Following completion of the engineering program, the student is awarded the Bachelor of Arts from Moravian and the Bachelor of Science in engineering from Washington University.
4/1 Graduate Program
A combined bachelor's and master's degree program in mechanical engineering or mechanics is offered in cooperation with Lehigh University. This program enables qualified students to earn a Bachelor of Science in physics from Moravian University and a Master of Science in mechanical engineering or mechanics from Lehigh University with an average total time of 5.5 years of full-time study.
