Why study in Erskine's dual education program in Engineering?
Erskine College maintains an engineering dual education (dual degree) program with Clemson University. You’ll enjoy the advantages of the small Christian community and liberal arts education found at Erskine coupled with the technical specialization available at Clemson.
In the program, you will typically complete three years at Erskine and two to three years at Clemson. This allows you to earn a bachelor of science degree in engineering from Clemson and a bachelor of arts degree in biology, chemistry, or mathematics from Erskine.
Choose to focus your studies in any of the following areas at Clemson:
- Materials Science and Engineering
I am double majoring in chemistry (BS) and math (BA) with a minor in physics. I am currently on path for the engineering dual degree program for material science. I really enjoy applying math to the real world. In my math classes, I learn about how the operations work, and how to properly use the math tools. In my chemistry and physics classes I learn how to apply these tools to electrons, atoms, vibrations, systems, etc. I look forward to applying math in engineering to design solutions and solve problems.
