That’s not an uncommon occurrence for graduates of the program either – one of the reasons he chose it to begin with.

Welcome to the Joint Engineering Program, a partnership between University of Missouri-St. Louis and Washington University! 


Engineers are problem-solvers and inventors. Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to make life better for society. Breakthroughs such as space flight, cellular telephones, the Internet, earthquake resistant structures, and “smart highways” all have their origins in engineering. You, too, can become one of the pioneers advancing technological discoveries into the lifestyles of future generations.

Students in the University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program receive Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering.

  • Civil engineering – planning, designing, and constructing cities, bridges, buildings, public facilities, transportation systems, waterways, and environmental waste treatment facilities.
  • Electrical engineering – using electrical phenomena to solve problems in communications, manufacturing, medicine, defense, the environment, and other areas.
  • Mechanical engineering – working on concerns in energy conversion and machine design, manufacturing, instrumentation, environmental control, and biomechanics.

Key Facts:

  • Our engineering program is designed for BOTH full-time and part-time students. The whole program can be taken in the late afternoon and evening to accommodate part-time students who work during the day. This schedule also encourages students to work on internships or co-ops during the day at St. Louis area engineering firms while still continuing their engineering studies in the evening.
  • Almost all of the engineering classes are taught in the late afternoon or evening at Washington University, using Washington University faculty, teaching laboratories, computer laboratories, libraries, and placement services
  • The tuition for engineering courses is the UMSL tuition plus a $68.20 engineering fee per student credit hour. For a full-time student, the tuition is approximately $9,500/year.
  • The student graduates from the University of Missouri. The diploma states: “University of Missouri/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program” and is signed by both the chancellors at University of Missouri-St. Louis and Washington University, but it is still a University of Missouri degree
  • This program is committed to student success. We offer free tutoring for all science, mathematics and engineering courses. Financial aid is available through this program, so that no meritorious student will be prevented from graduating due to financial need. Students have both a Washington University and an UMSL engineering advisor, who guide the students through registration of classes and co-op, internship and permanent job opportunities. The student engineering organization invites practicing engineers to speak to our students, so our students have a much better idea of which area of engineering they wish to study.
  • In 2013, the program graduated 13 Civil Engineers, 21 Electrical Engineers, and 23 Mechanical Engineers. In the Fall of 2013, the program had about 175 Pre-Engineering students, 67 Civil Engineering students, 105 Electrical Engineering students, and 95 Mechanical Engineering students.
  • All three engineering programs, B.S. in Civil Engineering, B.S. in Electrical Engineering, and B. S. in Mechanical Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
