The unique dual-degree engineering programs at Elon support students in working toward two degrees: one from Elon and one from an engineering university. Students participating in the program will complete three years at Elon. These years will include science, mathematics, computer science and Core Curriculum courses along with their discipline-specific courses. Foundational engineering courses are offered by our faculty every fall and spring. After finishing three years at Elon and satisfying the entry requirements of the affiliate engineering university, the student will transfer to the engineering institution, normally for two more years.

An engineering degree plus a degree in a supportive science or math

Elon’s engineering dual-degree program offers students an outstanding opportunity to earn two undergraduate degrees and launch a career in this lucrative and dynamic field. Students typically complete both degrees within five years, earning a bachelor’s degree in engineering from an affiliated engineering school and a bachelor’s degree in one of six Elon science majors.

Engineering majors attend Elon for three years to focus on a concentration chosen from the following:

  • Engineering Physics
  • Computer Sciences/Engineering
  • Chemistry/Chemical Engineering
  • Engineering Mathematics
  • Environmental Science/Environmental Engineering
  • Biophysics/Biomedical Engineering

Students then transfer to an affiliated school in the engineering discipline of their choice. Currently, Elon has affiliations with the following engineering schools:

  • North Carolina State University
  • Georgia Tech
  • Penn State
  • Virginia Tech
  • University of Notre Dame
  • Washington University in St. Louis
  • North Carolina A&T State University
  • University of South Carolina
  • Clemson University
