Centre offers a cooperative dual degree engineering program with three major universities.
The breadth of knowledge and communication skills received at Centre, coupled with the engineering degree, make dual-degree graduates especially attractive to industry, government, graduate programs, and professional schools.
Centre has cooperative dual-degree agreements with three engineering schools: University of Kentucky, Vanderbilt University, and Washington University. 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.
While at Centre, students have the option of working toward a major in chemistry, mathematics, or physics. At the same time, students are expected to complete the common requirements of all Centre graduates, including coursework in the humanities, social sciences, mathematics and sciences, and fundamental questions category. Although most students opt to complete the typical “3-2” program, it is also possible to complete a “4-2” (four years at Centre followed by two at a partner school). Some students use this option in order to completely finish a major, complete a double major, or utilize four years of sport eligibility.
Interested students should consult with faculty advisor Professor Bruce Rodenborn.
