Dual Degree Program
Students in this program study for three years at Covenant College before transferring to an approved engineering school. The dual degree program allows students to gain the benefits of the Christ- centered education offered by Covenant and the excellent scientific training available from a variety of universities and technical institutes. The program prepares students for study in the areas of mechanical, electrical, chemical, and industrial engineering, along with their associated sub-disciplines. Please note that architecture is not an area of engineering and as such is not part of the dual degree program. While we have a preferred relation with the Georgia Institute of Technology, recent participants in the program have also attended a number of other universities such as Clemson, the University of Kentucky, Tennessee Tech, Auburn, and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Because of the rigorous nature of this program, students should have a SAT score of at least 1100 (critical reading plus math only) and a minimum SAT math score of 600 or ACT math score of 25 prior to enrollment at Covenant. Students may request the approval of specific engineering schools by submitting a catalog to the Dual Degree Program Director at Covenant. The program director will identify requirements that must be transferred back to Covenant to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Science: Engineering while completing a Bachelor of Science in a variety of disciplines of engineering or mathematics. Admittance to or completion of the pre-engineering program at Covenant College does not automatically guarantee admission to the approved engineering school. Each student must meet the transfer student admission requirements of the approved institution.
Requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree with a Major in Natural Science and concentration in Pre-Engineering are listed under the Engineering section.
