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.
