You will complete three years of education at Elon, which will include a full array of science, mathematics, computer science and Elon Core Curriculum courses along with their discipline-specific courses. After finishing these three years at Elon and also satisfying the entry requirements of the affiliate engineering university, you will transfer to the affiliate engineering institution to complete their coursework (normally takes two years). Upon completion of these years of study, you will receive a Bachelor of Science degree from the engineering school and a Bachelor of Science degree from Elon University in Engineering Physics, Engineering Mathematics, Environmental Science/Environmental Engineering, BioPhysics/Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry/Chemical Engineering or Computer Science/Engineering.

Remember: You must complete Elon’s Core Curriculum program requirements, the Elon engineering foundations and one of the six dual-degree program options.
