The Engineering profession applies the principles of mathematics, science, economics, ethics, and social science to use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind. The fundamental objective of the School of Engineering is to provide its students with an engineering education of the highest possible caliber that will qualify them to enter directly the professional practice of engineering or advanced studies in engineering or other professional areas. Within its efforts to achieve this objective, the faculty is inherently dedicated to encouraging its students to develop a commitment to Christian principles of conduct in their personal and professional activities.
 
Degrees Offered. The Edward F. Cross School of Engineering offers curricula leading to two distinct degrees. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree is designed to prepare students to enter professional engineering practice and, also, to provide undergraduate instruction which will serve as a strong foundation for graduate studies. The curriculum, includes elective concentrations in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. The B.S.E. degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc., under the category of engineering.
 
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in bioengineering is intended primarily for students planning to pursue advanced studies in bioengineering, medicine, dentistry, public health, or physiology. It is not designed for students desiring to enter directly into the practice of professional engineering following their undergraduate study.
 
For Architectural studies see the Preprofessional Programs: Architecture in this bulletin.
 
Admission Requirements. Requirements for admission to the School of Engineering are 40 semester periods of English, 10 semester periods of laboratory science, 30 semester periods of mathematics (beyond general mathematics), and 20 semester periods of history. The mathematics background should include algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Prospective engineering students are encouraged to prepare themselves broadly by taking as many additional courses as possible in high school mathematics, English, science, social studies, and humanities. Studies in foreign languages and the practical arts are also valuable.
 
Students with entrance deficiencies may be admitted. However, such deficiencies must be removed before the beginning of the sophomore year. Students who present a transcript of previous successful studies at another approved college or university may be admitted with advanced standing.
 
Admission to engineering studies is normally made only in September. However, students may be admitted in January or March provided that an acceptable program can be scheduled.
 
Affiliation Program. North American Seventh-day Adventist colleges and universities are affiliated with Walla Walla College under a program which allows students to complete the first one or two years of engineering instruction at any participating institution and then complete degree requirements at Walla Walla College. Each affiliated campus has an engineering coordinator appointed to provide the necessary guidance to insure a smooth transition from the affiliated campus to Walla Walla College. Details of this program can be obtained from the Dean of the School of Engineering.
