Mathematics and Engineering Dual-Degree

Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts

If you possess a passion for mathematics alongside an aspiration to carve a career path in engineering, the Mathematics and Engineering Dual-Degree (BS/BA) program is your gateway to an unparalleled fusion of these disciplines, substantially expanding your professional opportunities.  

At UWA, we’ve established strategic partnerships with esteemed Schools of Engineering at prestigious institutions including Auburn University, Mississippi State University, the University of Alabama and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. This innovative collaboration empowers you to embark on a transformative academic journey: spend approximately seven semesters at UWA, then seamlessly transition to one of our partner schools for two years of focused engineering studies. The culmination of this endeavor is a dual bachelor’s degree in mathematics from UWA and in engineering from the partner institution.
