Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The Dual Degree Program allows students to earn two degrees from two institutions, in less time than it would take to earn them separately. Students would begin their education at one of the colleges or universities listed below. This provides students with the opportunity to study basic engineering, science, math, or liberal arts at a small, yet high-quality institution. Students would then transfer to Virginia Tech to finish their education. This program takes approximately five years after which the student would receive a B.S. degree in engineering from Virginia Tech and a B.A. or B.S. from the other college or university.

What are the advantages?
Students would be able to enjoy the benefits of both schools.
They would start out at a smaller institution, with smaller classes.
They would receive two degrees instead of one.
They would enjoy program flexibility to make important curricular and career opportunities.
They would be able to attend the one of the finest engineering schools in the United States.
