Bachelor of Arts in Engineering (Cooperative Program)

The university has a cooperative program that will enable students earning a BS in Engineering from Texas Tech University (TTU) or West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) to also receive a BA in Engineering Lubbock Christian University. The first five semesters are taken at Lubbock Christian University and the remaining semesters are taken at one of the partnership universities. The BS in Engineering from TTU or WTAMU must first be earned to apply for the Lubbock Christian University degree.

During the second year at Lubbock Christian University, students must apply for admission to the TTU or WTAMU engineering department. Other courses may be advised by TTU or WTAMU when a field of engineering is selected. Deviations or substitutions must be approved by the program coordinator at Lubbock Christian University.
