Engineering Dual Degree
The MSUM Engineering Dual Degree gives you a distinctly competitive advantage by leveraging your options with two highly desired degrees that offer above average starting salaries in fields that are expanding. Here is how you earn a double major in Engineering and an MSUM major:
- Take 3 years of coursework at MSUM: Complete your liberal arts and sciences curriculum and take coursework toward a degree in Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry.
- Transfer to any university with an engineering program you are interested in and take 2 years of coursework to complete an engineering degree. Common choices for students pursuing this option are to attend the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, North Dakota State University or University of North Dakota.
You will then graduate from MSUM with a degree in Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry and graduate with an engineering degree in your chosen specialty.
Why start at MSUM?
- MSUM classes are small, which is a huge benefit for advanced mathematics and science courses, and the program is student focused, helping you to explore an engineering degree in a highly personalized teaching and learning environment.
- Dual degree graduates are highly distinguishable and more marketable because of the additional skill sets from two challenging curricula. You also gain more in-depth exposure to a particular subject area (i.e. biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, biosystem engineering, aerospace engineering, etc.)
- MSUM will prepare your for successful transfer to the university of your choice, with 100 percent of our dual degree applicants completing their engineering degrees.
- While the Engineering Dual Degree is a preferred track for students considering a career in one of many engineering fields, our pre-engineering and engineering physics students also successfully transfer to other institutions, such as University of Minnesota-Duluth, Minnesota State University Mankato and Texas A & M.
