Meet our engineering students ... [Photos]
Amanda Bragg and Meghan Yohpe are pictured with their Engineering 101 team project.
Engineering students take Engineering 101 at NCSU in the fall of their freshmen or sophomore year. We try to register 2-4 Meredith students for the same section of the course so they can share rides to NCSU and have the option of working together to complete the classes team project. Amanda and Meghan built a working fountain for their team project.
Monday, February 8, 2010. This panel featured engineers from a variety of companies. Attending the panel was a great way for students to learn more about the work environment of various business/industry settings, not just the engineering profession. Immediately after the panel, the panelists and students were invited to join NMS faculty for a tour of SMB, followed by lunch in Belk Dining Hall. This was a great opportunity to get to have conversations with engineers.

The Engineering Dual Degree program, an agreement between Meredith College and North Carolina State University, allows students to attend Meredith College for about three years and then attend North Carolina State University's College of Engineering for approximately two years.
Advantages of Meredith's Engineering Dual Degree program, include:
How the Dual Degree program works:
Students will be mentored by women who have upper class status in engineering or who are practicing engineers. Students will have the choice each year during their five years in the program to participate in a living community at Meredith College mainly for women who have chosen engineering, science, mathematics or computer science as a major. After the students officially transfer to NCSU for their fourth year, they will continue to have the option of living on the Meredith College campus until the completion of their Engineering Dual Degree program.
Students are encouraged to indicate their interest in this program during Summer Registration before the first semester of their freshman year. They should declare their Meredith major during their first semester and will be assigned to one of the engineering program advisors. Students who declare their major after the first semester may not be able to complete both degree programs in five years.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 while at Meredith to continue enrollment in the program. Admission to NCSU College of Engineering is dependent on GPA and the successful completion of a set of required courses.
For more information, interested students should contact Kassy Mies, engineering program coordinator at Meredith, before registering for their first semester at Meredith College.

Ten F'09 Meredith freshmen are taking E 101 Introduction to Engineering and Problem Solving at NC State University; this is the first engineering course that students complete as part of the Engineering Dual Degree Program between Meredith College and NC State. One requirement of this course and the program is their participation in the Engineering Design Day on Tuesday, November 24 at the McKimmon Center; if you would like more information about the event, you can visit the website: http://www.engr.ncsu.edu/firstyear/fedd.php.
