William Jewell’s newest B.S. degree, civil engineering is designed with an environmental emphasis and focuses on four technical areas: environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic and structural.
William Jewell’s dual-degree engineering program allows you to earn a B.A. degree from Jewell in physics or chemistry and a B.S. degree in engineering from an affiliated school. Upon successful completion of Jewell curriculum, you are guaranteed admission to a partnering engineering school.
William Jewell works in cooperation with several outstanding engineering schools to offer
you a choice of 3-2 or 4-2 programs:
- Washington University
- University of Kansas
- Vanderbilt University
- Columbia University
- Missouri S&T
Why prepare for a career in engineering in a small liberal arts college setting?
William Jewell’s Critical Thought and Inquiry (ACT-In) core curriculum prepares students to be successful and reflective citizens of a global community. Jewell students enjoy the benefits of a broad base of learning skills, a depth of intellectual perspective and opportunities to apply their skills and knowledge to relevant contemporary issues. Students are engaged and challenged through the development of reading and research capabilities, communication and language, reasoning, and critical and ethical thinking. Students develop the ability to write, speak and communicate effectively on an interpersonal level—skills that employers say are vital for dealing with the demands of the workplace.
