Dual-Degree Engineering

Centre offers a cooperative dual degree engineering program with two major universities. While at Centre, students have the option of working toward a major in chemistry, mathematics, biology, computer science, environmental studies, or physics.


Centre has cooperative dual-degree agreements with two engineering schools: Washington University—St. Louis and the University of Kentucky. After three years at Centre, students transfer to the dual-degree institution and complete their studies, usually in two years. Upon successful completion, degrees are awarded from both Centre and the engineering school.


Students must complete the requirements of their chosen Centre College major including all general education courses along with two semesters of calculus-based physics with labs, three semesters of calculus and differential equations, one semester of chemistry with laboratory, and other degree-specific courses required by the partner school.
