3+2 Dual Degree Engineering Programs
King’s College offers 3+2 Dual Degree Engineering Programs in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame and Washington University in St. Louis. These programs allow students to study for three years at King’s College taking mathematics, science, pre-engineering and liberal arts courses, and then transfer to Notre Dame or Washington University for two years to complete engineering courses in their chosen fields. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive both a B.S. from King’s College (in Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Science or Computer Science) and a B.S. in Engineering from Notre Dame (in Aerospace, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental or Mechanical Engineering) or Washington University (in Biomedical, Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical or Systems Engineering).
During the three years at King’s, students take a variety of liberal arts courses that develop skills in written and oral communication, moral reasoning and critical thinking. Employers value the liberal arts/engineering combination since students possess not only technical skills, but also the ability to write proposals and make presentations, and have a broader understanding of engineering systems and the role of technology in our changing society.
All of Notre Dame’s and Washington University’s engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Both colleges have a strong history with 3+2 engineering programs and have affiliations with schools that are a similar size and background as King’s College.
Notre Dame and King’s College are both sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross and and share the same supporting values.
