Bachelor in Engineering (Combined Degree)

The study of engineering begins with a foundation in mathematics and the natural sciences.

Bachelor in Engineering (Combined Degree) In engineering, you put the laws of nature to use—building a smarter phone, a lighter jet, a longer-lived battery, or even a more efficient company. The study of engineering begins with a foundation in mathematics and the natural sciences. Through the University of Redlands, you can lay that foundation while enjoying the small classes, personalized education, and diverse opportunities that Redlands is known for and developing the breadth of liberal arts knowledge and skills that are essential for a rewarding life and a successful career. Either you can pursue a master's in engineering after earning a bachelor's degree in one of the sciences, or you can expedite your education by participating in one of our engineering combined-degree programs. A strong student can complete a Redlands major and general education requirements while taking pre-engineering courses, all in three years. The program adviser can help you plan your schedule accordingly. Provided that you maintained high grades in the pre-engineering courses, you’d enroll at Columbia or Washington University’s School of Engineering for the next two years (financial aid and housing are arranged through Columbia or Washington). At the end of the five years, you’d graduate with degrees from both institutions. You are free to pair any University of Redlands undergraduate major with any engineering major; however, the pre-engineering requirements for most sub-fields are most compatible with the physics B.A. or individualized Johnston emphases.

Bachelor in Accounting The Redlands Accounting program differs from programs in many business schools because we believe that a rigorous, liberal arts education is the most effective foundation for a career in professional accounting. While our students do acquire the specific business and accounting knowledge necessary to pass professional examinations and join the accounting profession, we are most proud of the development of their intellectual and analytical capabilities, interpersonal and communication skills and their commitments to integrity, self-motivation and lifelong learning. Students work very closely with the faculty, all of whom have extensive professional experience in large and small CPA firms and corporations to add to their academic backgrounds. Small classes, many with less than 20, mean that all students are active participants at every class meeting. Students frequently meet with professors outside of class to discuss concepts, for help with resumes or interview skills, to identify and apply for internships and to plan their careers. Each student will have one-on-one study experiences as they complete at least one independent study, capstone or honors project. Most accounting majors are involved in extracurricular activities such as sports, clubs or part-time internships during the school year. Some of these will likely have a strongly topical focus. The Redlands Accounting Society, to which all majors belong, brings in a dozen or more speakers each year. The Redlands Student Investment Fund, open to all students, manages a portion of the University’s endowment, presenting and making decisions about potential investments. Some students prepare tax returns... [-]
