Engineering Dual Degree / Program of Study

The Engineering Dual Degree Program is an agreement between Meredith College and North Carolina State University whereby students simultaneously complete the academic requirements of both institutions. Through carefully coordinated scheduling, the program allows academically qualified students to graduate in five years. Students successfully completing the admission, transfer and academic requirements of both institutions will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree from Meredith College in chemistry or mathematics and a Bachelor of Science degree from NC State in chemical or environmental engineering, or civil, computer, electrical, industrial or mechanical engineering. Degree pairings are as follows:

Option 1:

Meredith College:
Bachelor of Arts – Chemistry Major

NC State University:
Bachelor of Science - Chemical Engineering
- or -
Bachelor of Science - Environmental Engineering

Meredith Degree Requirements:
Students must complete 124 credit hours to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry. The major requires 32 hours of core curriculum courses, 7 hours of chemistry courses above the 100 level, including CHE 490, and 6 elective hours above the 100 level chosen from biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics are required.

Option 2:

Meredith College:
Bachelor of Arts – Mathematics Major

NC State University:
Bachelor of Science - Civil Engineering
Bachelor of Science - Computer Engineering
Bachelor of Science - Electrical Engineering
Bachelor of Science - Industrial Engineering
- or -
Bachelor of Science - Mechanical Engineering

Meredith Degree Requirements:
Students must complete 124 credit hours to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics. The major requires 32 hours: 17 hours of core curriculum courses, 9 hours of mathematics electives above the 100 level, MAT 490 Senior Seminar, and one course from the following are required: MAT 321 Modern Abstract Algebra; MAT 410 Advanced Calculus; MAT 415 Topics in Analysis; MAT 425 Topics in Algebra; MAT 434 Topics in Geometry and Topology.

Completing the Dual Degree

To graduate from both schools in five years, students must declare their intentions to participate in the program upon their acceptance to Meredith College and must select their majors by the end of their first semester at Meredith College. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better while at Meredith to continue enrollment in the program. Admission to NC State University College of Engineering is dependent on GPA and the successful completion of a set of required courses.
