Saint Francis University has cooperative engineering programs with The Pennsylvania State University and the University of Pittsburgh. The programs are designed to prepare a student with a liberal arts background for a professional career in a
branch of engineering.
After successfully completing three years in the pre-engineering program at Saint Francis University, the qualified student transfers to any of the schools mentioned or to any school offering ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology)-accredited B.S.
program in engineering to complete the final two years of the program. After successful completion of one full year in an engineering program at another school, the student will receive the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Engineering from Saint Francis University.
