Biomedical Engineering, Pre-Engineering (3-2) Program

Advisor—Dr. Markwardt, Zoology

A student who meets all University graduation requirements including the completion of at least 24 courses (each a full-unit course, a 1.25-unit course, or two modular 0.50-unit courses in the same department) and meets the admission requirements of the engineering school (specified below) may transfer to the engineering school at the end of his or her junior year for two more years of study. Upon certification of successful completion of the program at the engineering school, he or she will receive the B.A. degree from Ohio Wesleyan and a bachelor of engineering degree from the engineering school. Ohio Wesleyan has cooperative arrangements with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Case Western Reserve University, and Washington University in St. Louis. Caltech admits pre-engineering students based on their review of the student’s undergraduate record and experience, as demonstrated by the transcript and faculty recommendations. Case Western requires a minimum GPA of 3.0 overall and in mathematics and science courses for admission to their program. Washington University in St. Louis requires a GPA of 3.25 overall as well as in mathematics and science courses for admission to their program. Not all engineering fields are available at these cooperating engineering schools. Refer to the websites of the individual partner schools for the latest information about the engineering concentrations that are offered. In addition, qualified students are able to transfer to engineering schools with which Ohio Wesleyan has no formal pre-engineering agreements. Students are individually counseled in course selection suitable for the engineering field of interest. A three-year residency in a liberal arts program in the United States is required prior to entering the engineering school.

The 3-2 program options and their requirements are listed below. In addition, see the descriptions under the departmental entries. None of the required courses may be taken credit/no entry.
