The University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program[edit]

The University of Missouri-St. Louis and Washington University in St. Louis Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program combines strengths of the two universities to provide a flexible engineering program for the St. Louis community.

Students in the joint program take the pre-engineering core of mathematics, physics, chemistry, humanities, social sciences, and some engineering subjects through the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Students take upper-level engineering courses and laboratories at Washington University in the evenings after 4 p.m. This flexible program allows students to co-op during the day at local engineering firms.
