In the science division at Illinois Wesleyan, 95 percent of the faculty hold an earned doctorate.
As an engineering major, you will probably be in our 3-2 program. You will study at Illinois Wesleyan for three years, then transfer to another school for two years of engineering courses — culminating with a B.A. degree from IWU and a B.S. in engineering from the cooperating institution.
We have special affiliations with
which means you are virtually assured transfer admission if you meet all requirements for the engineering curriculum at the affiliated school.
Of course, you may choose to attend any engineering school. Recent students have pursued engineering programs at University of Illinois, University of Wisconsin and Purdue University.
Some students opt for a 3-3 program in order to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s. Students can also work toward a standard four-year degree at Illinois Wesleyan, followed either by two years at an engineering school or, in some cases, direct entry into M.S. or Ph.D. programs in engineering.

This is an example three-year plan; your actual schedule can/ will deviate from this sample. Your faculty advisor will work with you to match appropriate courses with your interests.
