DUAL-DEGREE ENGINEERING

The dual-degree program in engineering allows the student to complete all of the requirements for the degree of bachelor of science with a major in mathematics, including all major requirements as well as those in general education, in three years and a summer of residence at Emporia State University. All that remains after the third year is to meet the requirement of at least 124 semester hours to graduate. The dual-degree program permits the student to transfer back to Emporia State as many hours of engineering courses as are necessary to fulfill the 124-hour requirement, and suspends the residency rule that requires a student to be currently enrolled at the time of graduation. A student can normally expect to graduate from ESU after his/her fourth year in college (and the first at the engineering school), and to receive the B.S. in engineering from either KSU or KU after the fifth year. The dual-degree is available in conjunction only with Kansas State University and The University of Kansas. Listed below are the curricula that should be followed by students in the dual-degree programs with a major in mathematics. For additional information about the engineering program see Physical Science/Engineering.

GENERAL EDUCATION INFORMATION FOR DUAL-DEGREE ENGINEERING

Emporia State University Requirements:

Students in the dual-degree pre-engineering program must meet the LAS general education requirements with the following exceptions: SP101 must be taken rather than SP100; EC103 must be taken rather than EC101; and a Life Science (4 hrs) and Applied Science (3 hrs) courses are not required. MA 161 (Calculus I) should be substituted for the basic skills mathematics requirement; and CH123/124 (Chemistry I/Lab) for the physical science requirement.

Kansas State University Requirements:

KSU requires that all engineering students complete English Composition I, English Composition II (unless an “A” or “B” is earned in English Composition I), public speaking, one course in

physical education, and technical writing (at the junior level). In addition to the required courses, each KSU student is to complete 15 hours in the humanities and social sciences, which includes such areas as anthropology, art, economics, English, geography, history, journalism, modern language (advanced work only), music, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology

and speech. At least two courses must be taken at the 400 level or above, and not more than three credits may be taken in applied music or applied art.

The University of Kansas Requirements:

Students will be required to complete 15-18 semester hours in the areas of humanities and social sciences, depending upon the field of engineering. In selecting courses, students should follow these guidelines: 1) At least one course designated as a humanities course, and one designated as a social science course. 2) At least two courses offered by one department. 3) A maximum of four credits from such areas as band, chorus, orchestra, drawing, painting, and sculpture may be taken for general education credit.
