Western's Quad Cities Campus Engineering Program
Western Illinois University offers a BS degree in Engineering at the Quad Cities campus. The WIU Engineering program is designed as a 2+2 program that articulates with pre-engineering programs at the WIU-Macomb campus and community colleges. The Engineering program focuses on the practice of engineering by providing a broad curriculum which emphasizes basic engineering fundamentals, while allowing students to select an area of emphasis in mechanical/manufacturing engineering or electrical/computer engineering. The Engineering program incorporates design and teamwork throughout the curriculum, with ample opportunities for practical, hands-on engineering educational experiences, including required internships and senior capstone design projects. Students seeking admission to the Engineering program must have an overall grade point average of 2.5, and a grade of "C" or better in MATH 133 and 134, Calculus and Analytic Geometry I and II, and Physics 197 and 198, University Physics I and II.
