Wright State, Bluffton University announce engineering partnership

Wright State University and Bluffton University have created a transfer partnership for students interested in studying engineering.

The Bluffton Transfer Pathway will allow Bluffton students to fulfill their general education courses at Bluffton and seamlessly transition to Wright State University’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program.

Students will have the ability to complete their degree in four years (eight semesters plus an additional summer semester), which helps students who may prefer to begin their college career at a smaller university.

“Wright State is delighted to provide this pathway for student success that builds on the firm foundation at Bluffton,” said Darryl Ahner, Ph.D., dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Wright State. “ABET-accredited engineering programs teach knowledge and skills that are critical to meet STEM needs in Ohio.”

“With this path, students will enjoy a small-campus experience with one-on-one attention and smaller class sizes for their first two years,” said Luke Myers, Ph.D., associate professor of physics at Bluffton University. “This partnership allows students to gain a solid foundation at Bluffton and graduate with a four-year accredited engineering degree.

One goal of the cooperative effort is to increase the number of baccalaureate-prepared engineers in Ohio.

After completing their studies at Wright State University, students will be eligible to sit for the professional electrical engineering examination, become licensed and start their careers.
