In a cooperative program with West Virginia University (WVU) or Youngstown State University (YSU), the pre-engineering student undertakes a three-year curriculum in liberal studies and natural sciences (physics, mathematics, chemistry, geology) at SRU and a two-year engineering curriculum at WVU or YSU. A student recommended for transfer by SRU’s Department of Physics will be able to enter any one of the following areas of study:

Agricultural and Biological Engineering
Chemical Engineering
Civil & Environmental Engineering
Computer Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Energy Engineering
Engineering Science
Geo-Environmental Engineering
Industrial Engineering
Material Science and Engineering
Mechanical Engineering
Mining Engineering
Nuclear Engineering
Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering


The cooperative program is an effort to fulfill the following objectives:

  1. To cooperatively provide a general education in liberal arts and sciences, as well as engineering education for each student enrolled so that through five years of study a student may complete what otherwise could require six or more years.
  2. To provide a student who has not yet decided between engineering and other disciplines, additional time to make that decision while the student studies both arts and sciences during the first three years at Slippery Rock University.
  3. To enable qualified students to receive both a liberal and technical education at relatively low cost and, in doing so, provide the commonwealth and the nation with more broadly educated engineers.

Requirements for the Major - Credits: 58
