The student completes three years (96 hrs.) which include the courses listed in the Two-Two program of study and the Morehead State University bachelor degree requirements before transferring to an engineering college to complete the final two years of specialty. Upon completing work at both schools, the student receives dual degrees: a B.S. degree from Morehead State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from the college of engineering. A student must complete an MSU major and minor, and the MSU General Education requirements. A student choosing the physics or mathematics or chemistry option has the requirement of at least four additional courses in the chosen option. Consult the advisor for details. Because colleges of engineering require a substantial background in physics, mathematics, and chemistry, students in the three-two program normally major in one of these areas. Students wishing to major in some other area should work closely with the pre-engineering advisor and an advisor in the selected major to ensure that requirements for both degrees are met.
Many employers of engineers are interested in Dual-Degree graduates because of their stronger science and mathematics problem-solving skills, their better communication skills, and their broader liberal arts training. Dual degree holders are better prepared to solve unusual engineering problems and to deal with the ethical and social impact of engineering activities.
