Mathematics and Engineering Dual-Degree


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

UWA has joined with the Schools of Engineering at Auburn University, Mississippi State University, the University of Alabama, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham to offer dual-degree programs in mathematics and engineering. This allows an undergraduate to attend UWA for approximately seven academic semesters and then transfer to the School of Engineering at either Auburn, MSU, Alabama, or UAB for two years of study in an engineering curriculum. After completing the academic requirements of the cooperating institutions, the student will be awarded a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from UWA and a bachelor’s degree in one of the following areas of engineering, dependent upon which institution the student completes his/her program: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Textile Engineering, or Computer Science.

In order to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from UWA, the student is required to complete either

  or   and the following mathematics courses:

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

Approved electives in Mathematics (from 300-400 series) (20)

In order for a student to become a dual-degree candidate, he or she must have completed three-fourths of the credit required for a degree from UWA, must have a recommendation from the Dual-Degree Coordinator at UWA, and must satisfy the admission requirements at the chosen School of Engineering.

Area of Study (Auburn Hours) UWA Equivalent


During the seven semester period, students planning to transfer to Auburn should take the following courses:

Introduction to Ethics (3)


  • No equivalent

General Chemistry I (4)


General Chemistry II (4)


Principles of Biology (4)


Organismal Biology (4)


General Physics I (4)


General Physics II (4)


Computer Programming (3)


Note(s):


  • The MSU Bagley College of Engineering requires 9 hours of Literature/Fine Arts and 6 hours of History/Behavioral Sciences. UWA requires 15 hours of Humanities and Fine Arts and 12 hours of History, Social, and Behavioral Sciences. Of those 12 hours, 6 must include Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. Industrial Engineering requires General Psychology and Microeconomics.
  • Students living in the following Mississippi counties pay Alabama in-state tuition rates at UWA: Clarke, Jasper, Kemper, Lauderdale, Neshoba, Newton, Noxubee, and Winston

Area of Study (MSU Hours) UWA Equivalent


During the seven semester period, students planning to transfer to MSU should take the following courses:

Area of Study (Alabama Hours) UWA Equivalent


During the seven semester period, students planning to transfer to Alabama should take the following courses:
