Bluffton University is adding a new major. The school is launching a pre-engineering program to its course catalog. Students in the major will take a blend of mathematics and physics courses along with some new classes designed specifically for pre-engineering majors.
Students in the program can transfer to an accredited engineering program after two to three years of study. They can also graduate with a four-year bachelor of arts degree from Bluffton and enroll in either an accredited bachelor’s or master’s engineering program.
Luke Myers is an assistant professor of physics at BU. He says that in the past professors encouraged students interested in engineering to major in math or physics.
