Prospective Undergraduate Students: Dual BS Degree

Some students may wish to consider obtaining two undergraduate engineering degrees. To do this, the student must satisfy all degree requirements for both degrees. Common reasons to earn a dual undergraduate degree are to improve job opportunities or to gain a more diverse background. The main disadvantage of earning a dual Bachelor of Science degree is that it delays your graduation one or more semesters. Students who are considering a dual BS degree should also consider graduate study or the 4/1 combined BS/MS program.

The Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering degree programs have been designed to facilitate a double major. With as little as nine extra hours, students may satisfy the degree requirements of both degree programs and receive both Bachelor of Science degrees. Approximately 10% of our undergraduate students receive both the BSME and BSAE degrees.

To officially apply students must complete a dual degree application and must have 45 to 96 hours including all tracking courses.
