The dual degree engineering program provides students with a professional engineering education and a well-rounded environmental liberal arts education. Northland College cooperates with Michigan Technological University (MTU) in Houghton, Michigan, and with Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, to provide the dual degree program.
Dual degree students attend Northland for three academic years and either MTU or Washington University for two academic years. Students must successfully complete the pre-engineering program and a Connections Curriculum during their three years at Northland. Upon completion of the five-year program, students earn a Bachelor of Science degree from Northland and a Bachelor of Science degree from either MTU or Washington University. Students who attend MTU earn a B. S. in Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Geological, Materials, or Mechanical Engineering. Students who attend Washington University earn a B. S. in Biomedical, Chemical, Computer, Computer Science, Electrical, Mechanical, or Systems Science Engineering.
For more information about the dual degree engineering program, contact Young Kim, the Engineering Program Coordinator.
Note: In order to receive a Northland degree, students must present the Registrar’s Office with a transcript of courses completed at MTU or Washington University. With the approval of the Academic Dean of the College, students may choose other engineering schools accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology.
