Engineering/Dual Degree

The Dual Degree Engineering Program affords students 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.
