The Dual Degree Engineering Program provides the opportunity to obtain both a liberal arts education and a professional engineering education. In the program, the student spends a minimum of three academic years at Spelman College and two academic years at a participating engineering school.

Upon completion of all requirements at both institutions, the student is simultaneously awarded a Bachelor of Science degree from Spelman College and a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the engineering institution. The student has the option of choosing or not choosing a major at Spelman.

Students in the Dual Degree Engineering Program are required to take all of the following courses before transferring to the engineering institution:
  • Introduction to Engineering
  • Engineering Graphics
  • Calculus I, II, III
  • Differential Equations
  • General Chemistry I, II
  • Physics I, II, III
  • Computer Programming I (C++)
  • Linear Algebra
  • Economics (Macro or Micro)
