Pre-Engineering or Computer Science Minor

For Christian colleges across the country, Wayland Baptist University offers a wide variety of undergraduate degree programs and although they may not be able to accommodate some of the educational training as larger universities, Wayland has created dual degree and enrollment programs with other colleges to assist in their Pre Professional programs.

In essence, a student spends two and a half to three years at Wayland taking mathematics, science, and core requirements. Along with some summer work, the final two to two and a half years are spent at an Engineering school (like West Texas A&M or Texas Tech) taking engineering/computer science classes. Enough hours from the Engineering school are transferred back to Wayland to allow a student to obtain both a B.S. in Mathematics from Wayland (with a minor in engineering or computer science) and a B.S. in a specific field of engineering (civil, mechanical, etc.) or computer science. In their final semester, the student will also take Wayland’s Senior Seminar course (GRAD 0001 PL99).

Visit TTU's Admission Page, Whitacre College of Engineering, and CCTR to view more about the engineering program with Texas Tech University.

Engineering is a five-year course of study and this cooperative program gives an attractive way to receive two degrees while completing most core and mathematics courses in a small college setting.

Courses to be completed at WTAMU or TTU

The Engineering school may require core curriculum classes not covered by Wayland’s core. See the official Degree Plan for details. Taking courses in the summer during the time courses are being taken at Wayland is recommended. Number of hours in the major depends upon the major chosen (computer science or type of engineering), and can range from 55 to 75 hours.
