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?

    1. 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.
    2. 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.)
    3. 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.
    4. 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.  

    Your engineering dual degree advisor depends on the major you select at MSUM. Learn more by contacting the faculty member below in your area of interest.
