Waynesburg University cooperates with several universities so that a high quality 3/2 Engineering Program can be offered at the College. This program is sometimes termed the liberal arts route to engineering. Students complete three years of study at Waynesburg University including chemistry, mathematics, physics, and liberal arts courses. Upon recommendation by our Engineering Advisory Committee students move directly to a cooperating university for two years of engineering courses. After successful completion of the program, students receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Waynesburg University and an Engineering degree from the cooperating university.
Forensic Science is an interdisciplinary study involving the application of biology, chemistry, physics, and forensic law to criminal investigation. The program prepares students for careers in local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies (the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Food & Drug Administration, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Environmental Protection Agency).
The Forensic Chemistry program prepares students to use chemical analysis for civil or criminal law. Forensic chemists apply the knowledge and technology of chemistry to assist the judicial system. Graduates in Forensic Chemistry are prepared to work in local, state, and federal forensic laboratories, and for agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency, Drug Enforcement Administration, Food & Drug Administration, Occupational Safety & Health Administration.
