Engineering and Applied Science

The Engineering and Applied Science program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for students interested in engineering and applied science. With this cooperative program, the student can combine the advantages of a liberal arts education at Millsaps with the specialized programs of a major university.

The pre-engineering program at Millsaps College may be combined with an applied math, chemistry, geosciences, biology, or biochemistry major. Our partnerships are with the Bagley College of Engineering at Mississippi State University, The University of Mississippi, and Columbia University. Dr. Yan Wang, associate professor of mathematics and the pre-engineering advisor at Millsaps, can help you craft courses of study that best fit your career interests and specific program requirements.

A student may attend Millsaps, complete the science, mathematics, and humanities requirements for the science and engineering degree, and then continue course work at one of the schools listed above. The student will then transfer a maximum of 32 semester hours back for a bachelor’s (BS) degree from Millsaps while also earning the bachelor’s (BE) degree in engineering from the dual-degree university.

Many programs are offered by the participating universities, including financial aid for qualified students. For detailed descriptions of programs and financial aid, students are urged to consult with the pre-engineering advisor. To be admitted to the programs, the student must fulfill certain minimum course requirements at Millsaps. To keep the dual degree option viable, a student should plan to take calculus within the first year at Millsaps.

Students interested in a particular program should also consult the catalog of the appropriate university and the Millsaps pre-engineering advisor. Most programs have particular requirements, which students might wish to fulfill at Millsaps. For more information, contact Millsaps’ pre-engineering advisor, Dr. Yan Wang.
