The dual-degree engineering program at Elon allows students to earn two undergraduate degrees: a bachelor's degree from Elon and a bachelor's degree from an affiliated engineering school. Students spend the first three years at Elon and the final two years at an engineering school. Elon has affiliations with North Carolina State University, North Carolina A&T University, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Penn State and Washington University (St. Louis).

Why Study Engineering at Elon?

The strength of Elon's program is built upon a distinctive undergraduate curriculum that combines courses in the liberal arts and science with engineering courses beginning in the freshman year. By the time the students have completed three years at Elon and two years at an engineering school, they have exceptional career preparation distinguished by broad knowledge in their field and foundational skills essential to the workplace.

Elon's program offers:

  • Small class size with mentoring by faculty who are focused on teaching undergraduates.
  • Exposure to many types of engineering before a final commitment is made.
  • A variety of internship possibilities.
  • Opportunities to participate in Elon's nationally recognized study abroad program.

Scholarships for engineering majors are available for the four-year degree program. Students interested in Engineering Scholarships should apply to the Elon College Fellows program since the major is housed within Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences.
