Special FeaturesIntensive courses in engineering are offered each January to allow sophomores, juniors and seniors attending affiliated institutions to explore and evaluate their interest in engineering. Taught by engineering faculty of Washington University, these introductory courses all carry three semester hours credit. The early January timing of the intensive courses fits nicely into the curricula of many affiliated institutions.
Students who choose the dual degree program at Missouri-Kansas City will have access to a multitude of internship opportunities in Kansas City, which is the 4th largest engineering community in the country (by revenue generated). Over 75% of UMKC undergraduate engineering students, including dual degree students, experience an internship during their course of study.
Application of the Dual DegreeApplication may be made at any time after the student completes sixty semester hours of transferable college coursework that includes at least one year of study in the affiliated college or university. The recommendation of the College Liaison Officer is required. Application packets are available from the Dual Degree Liaison Officers and may be filled out as early as the summer following the sophomore year or as late as the spring of the senior year.
