Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

AGREEMENT
BETWEEN
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS
AND
TEXAS WOMAN’S UNIVERSITY

PERTAINING TO
A DUAL DEGREE PROGRAM:
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MECHANICAL AND ENERGY ENGINEERING
at UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS
and
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MATHEMATICS
At TEXAS WOMAN’S UNIVERSITY

The purpose of this unique agreement is to establish a dual degree program between the University of North Texas on behalf of its College of Engineering and the Texas Woman’s University on behalf of its College of Arts and Science. The agreement will facilitate a collaborative working relationship between the departments at TWU and UNT.

The dual degree program in mathematics and electrical engineering combines the strengths of Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and University of North Texas (UNT) to permit students to earn two degrees simultaneously while preparing for a professional career in engineering.

The recommended course of study is designed to enable completion of the degrees in four years. After completion of degree requirements, students will receive the Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from TWU and the Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering/Materials Science and Engineering/Mechanical and Energy Engineering from UNT.

Our specific aim at UNT is to encourage women to study engineering and grow professionally to attain leadership positions in industry. Our unique, project-oriented, electrical engineering curriculum has been classified as one of its “nugget” funded programs by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The electrical engineering curriculum offers classical as well as specialized courses and requires students to complete courses in entrepreneurship and operations management as part of its degree plan.


The dual degree program now encompasses:
Materials Science and Engineering (UNT) and MATH (TWU)
Materials Science and Engineering (UNT) and Chemistry (TWU)
Mechanical and Energy Engineering (UNT) and MATH (TWU)
