JU Engineering is pleased to announce the Math, Engineering, and Physics (MEP)-Scholar Program. If interested, please see announcement below for more information and the application for students.


Do you like mathematics and physics?  Would you like to take advantage of the individual attention of a small liberal arts university and possibly obtain a degree from a nationally renowned engineering school?  If your answer to either question is yes, then Jacksonville University’s (JU’s) Mathematics, Engineering and Physics (MEP)-Scholar Program may be for you.  As a MEP-Scholar you will be able to choose between our engineering dual degree program and our four-year degree programs in engineering mathematics or physics at JU.

Under the dual-degree program you take three years of courses in a major of your choice (mathematics, physics, chemistry, or biology) at JU while taking advantage of our small class sizes and individual attention from our faculty.  After your initial three years, you transfer to one of our affiliated institutions (AI) for an additional two years in an engineering discipline of your choice.  Our AIs include such prestigious universities as Georgia Tech, Columbia and the University of Florida.  After completing two years at the affiliated institution you will receive two bachelor degrees:  one from JU in your chosen major and the second from the AI in your chosen engineering discipline. 
Our four-year degree programs in engineering mathematics and physics feature a full complement of upper-level technical courses, opportunities for independent study or research, and room for minors in other programs of interest.
Besides offering you the advantages of a small university for your critical initial years of study, the program features various other support structures and assistance:
  • A limited number of full scholarship packages.
  • A $12,000 per year scholarship to JU for selected applicants.
  • A MEP-Scholars wing of a residence hall that features…
    • A peer study area.
    • On-site faculty office hours.
  • An academic learning community in which you can…
    • Work with a faculty mentor in your discipline.
    • Take common courses (including integrated calculus and physics courses) with fellow MEP-Scholars.
    • Train and compete in an international mathematical modeling contest.
    • Participate in summer research opportunities.
  • Career development services including…
    • Opportunities for internships, job shadowing and industry visits.
    • Visits Georgia Tech and the University of Florida to help you investigate AIs and graduate programs.
    • Employment, transfer and graduate school application assistance.
    • Practice interviews.
The minimum requirements to be a MEP-Scholar include an SAT of 1000 (550 in mathematics), a 3.25 High School GPA, and being prepared to take Calculus I (or higher). Please fill out the application electronically and e-mail it to meps@ju.eduApplications from minorities and women are especially encouraged.
