Engineering Programs

Create, Innovate and Solve the World's Problems with a Dual Degree in Engineering

We offer more than just an education in engineering -- we practice hands-on engineering. USD's Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering offers a supportive education that inspires students to innovate, create and ultimately, make a difference by practicing real-world engineering.

The Dual BS/BA Degree: A Balanced Perspective

The dual BS/BA degree in engineering is designed to develop thinkers and leaders who have solid technical, communication and problem-solving skills balanced with a broad perspective to make things happen locally and globally. All of our engineering programs offer:

  • Close interactions with faculty that inspire true engagement
  • A small class size that provides individual perspectives through collaboration with a diverse group of men and women
  • An environment that allows you to actually practice engineering in the lab, garages and studios through projects that are linked to theory and tied to challenging, open-ended issues
  • Strong communication skills through teamwork and the presentation of ideas and projects
  • Networking opportunities through internships, industry partnerships, community involvement and events

The Common Core

All of our programs begin with a common core curriculum in the first two years, so that you can explore all departments – Computer ScienceElectrical, General EngineeringMechanical Engineering, and Industrial and Systems Engineering – to determine which is right for you.
