Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Cooperative Program)
Want to be an engineer? Lubbock Christian University offers you the opportunity to pursue engineering by studying at LCU for 2 ½ years and then studying at an engineering school for an additional 2 years. At the end of this time you will receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from LCU and a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from the engineering school. Currently, you can transfer easily to the engineering schools at Texas Tech University and West Texas A&M, both ABET-accredited programs.
What advantages does this hold for you?
- We are very interested in your success. We are a small school with small class sizes, we care about all of our students, and we know everyone’s name! Teaching is your professors’ first priority, not research.
- You can enjoy the Christian atmosphere at a small school, make friends, get involved in extracurricular activities and become a campus leader.
- While you’re completing your degree at Texas Tech, you can live on our campus, eat in our dining facility, use our Medical Clinic, Rec Center, Library, and IT services, stay active in a social club, and even attend our athletic events.
- Your education will have a broader liberal arts base. That means you will be more well-rounded with a better knowledge of the world you will be working in. We focus on critical thinking and writing skills that are in high demand by engineering employers.
- If you are still deciding on your future career and want to have engineering as a possibility you can start here at LCU with the knowledge that you can stay and major in another math or science, the arts, humanities, business, the possibilities are endless. This gives you much greater career choice and flexibility at a time in your life when you might not be completely sure what you want to be when you grow up.
We have these unique arrangements with Texas Tech University and West Texas A & M University that will allow for your smooth transition into engineering school after completing the required courses at LCU with the appropriate GPA. These arrangements provide you certain advantages, but it is possible for you to transfer to other engineering schools, both in Texas and out of state with the classes that you take at LCU.
As an alternative many students want to stay at LCU for all 4 years and get a degree in mathematics or chemistry and then go on to get a second bachelors in engineering or a masters in engineering. This route is also available at both TTU and WTAMU.
We would love for you to Be Blue, be a Chap! Let us help you reach your goal of being a professional engineer some day after having a great college experience.
