The Dual Degree Engineering Program is an agreement between Meredith College and North Carolina State University (NC State) 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 who successfully complete the admission, transfer and academic requirements of both institutions will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts from Meredith College in chemistry or mathematics and a Bachelor of Science from NC State in chemical, environmental, civil, computer, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering. Degree pairings are:
Meredith College: BA – Chemistry
NC State: BS - Chemical or Environmental Engineering
Meredith College: BA – Mathematics
NC State: BS - Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial, or Mechanical Engineering

Dual Engineering student Christina Churchill walks us through her typical day as a student enrolled in the Dual Engineering program, a partnership Meredith College has with NC State University.
Wamunyu earned degrees in mathematics and civil engineering through Meredith's engineering dual degree partnership with NC State. As a student at Meredith, Wamunyu's enriching experiences included meeting Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai. After graduation, Wamunyu will pursue a master's degree in city planning at the University of California, Berkeley.
