The Dual Degree Program in Engineering 

The (Bachelors-Bachelors) Dual Degree Program

Students in the Dual Degree Program spend three years at Wofford developing a liberal arts foundation before continuing their studies in engineering through either Columbia University or Clemson University. After three years at Wofford, successful students will transfer to one of the partner institutions to complete the engineering curriculum. Upon completion of the program, students will receive a bachelor's degree from Wofford College and a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from the partner institution.

To receive a recommendation from the Wofford pre-engineering committee for enrollment in the engineering portion of the program, students must complete the following: 

  1. All general education requirements for a Wofford College degree.
  2. All requirements for a major at Wofford College. Some departments allow a course from the engineering school to fulfill major requirements.
  3. All required courses for the institution-specific Dual Degree Program.

Courses required for the Dual Degree Program depend on the choice of partner institution. Students should consult partner institution websites and talk with the Wofford liaison officer as soon as possible to begin the proper sequence of courses.

 The 4-2 (Bachelors-Masters) Dual Degree Alternative

An alternate path to becoming an engineer offers four years at Wofford College followed by a master’s degree in engineering. Some universities, such as Columbia University, refer to this as a 4-2 master of science program. Students interested in this option typically major in physics, chemistry or mathematics at Wofford, then apply to the graduate school of their choice. Students should consult engineering program websites and talk with the Wofford liaison officer as soon as possible to begin the proper sequence of courses.
