Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

A coordinated dual degree program between the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering and Fisk University is especially designed to permit students to obtain an A.B. degree in biology, chemistry, physics, or mathematics from Fisk and a B.E. degree in engineering from Vanderbilt, generally within five years. For the first three years, the student is enrolled at Fisk in a science curriculum and, by cross-registration, takes introductory engineering courses at Vanderbilt. During the fourth and fifth years, the student is enrolled at Vanderbilt, following principally an engineering curriculum at Vanderbilt and completing science courses at Fisk. At the end of five years, the student should be able to satisfy the requirements for both bachelor's degrees. Financial aid is available for qualified students. Additional information is available from the Engineering Dean's Office.

In addition to the Fisk University Dual Degree Program, we have 16 institutional partners with whom we have memoranda of understanding for 3-2 programs, in which students may earn the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science from their first institution and a Bachelor of Engineering from Vanderbilt University. These programs were renewed and updated in 2013; ten are currently active.

In 2015/2016, we graduated one student each from Fisk University, Tulane University, and Centre College.
