To offer the advantages of combining Christian liberal arts and engineering majors not offered at SPU, SPU has partnerships with other universities to provide a wide range of opportunities for students. A student interested in a branch of engineering not offered at SPU may follow a combined program consisting of three years of study at SPU and two years at one of three partnering schools:  the University of Washington, Washington State University, or Columbia University. At the completion of all requirements for both schools, he or she will receive a B.A. in Physical Sciences from SPU and a B.S. from the participating engineering school. During the three years spent in residence at SPU the student satisfies the requirements for SPU's Physical Sciences B.A. degree, and many requirements for the B.S. degree by taking prescribed courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and engineering. If the student then fulfills the entrance requirements of the partnering university, he or she may transfer to the participating university. At that university, the student will spend two years taking upper-division engineering courses to complete the second degree. Details of this 3-2 transfer program are available from the engineering program director.

Details and important information on SPU's dual-degree 3-2 program are available on the engineering advising site.
