The mission of the Rockhurst Engineering Science Program is to develop high-quality graduates who meet the needs of our society both locally and globally. Engineering graduates will be engineers and technology specialists actively involved in the life and growth of the region, and committed to serve the needs of our contemporary world. Rockhurst University and the University of Missouri–Kansas City have partnered together to offer the following engineering and computing programs, resulting in five Rockhurst Bachelor of Science degrees:

Civil Engineering, B.S., in partnership with UMKC  
Electrical Engineering, B.S., in partnership with UMKC  
Mechanical Engineering, B.S., in partnership with UMKC  
Computer Science, B.S., in partnership with UMKC  (located within College of Business, Influence, and Information Analysis )

The four-year joint program includes classes at both university campuses. Students will take all of their math, physics and core liberal arts classes at Rockhurst while taking specialized courses at UMKC.

Students interested in the Joint Program Engineering program should contact the Rockhurst Engineering Science Program Director, Mark Pecaut ( Due to the prerequisite structure of classes in these majors, it is important that students begin to follow the four-year plans as early as possible.

It is also possible to complete a pre-engineering curriculum and transfer to another accredited engineering university after two or three years at Rockhurst. Students may be interested in this option if they wish to pursue an engineering major that is not offered at Rockhurst. If this is the path students plan to pursue they would still sign up for the joint Rockhurst/UMKC program and take relevant coursework at both Rockhurst and UMKC during their time at Rockhurst. You should discuss your plans with the program director and take coursework as advised.
