3+2 Engineering Dual Degree Program with the University of Notre Dame
King’s College offers a 3+2 Engineering Dual Degree Program in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame. The program allows students to study for three years at King’s College taking mathematics, science, pre-engineering and liberal arts courses, and then transfer to Notre Dame for two years to complete engineering courses in their chosen fields. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive both a B.S. from King’s College (in Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Science or Computer Science) and a B.S. in Engineering from Notre Dame (in Aerospace, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental or Mechanical Engineering).
During the three years at King’s, students take a variety of liberal arts courses that develop skills in written and oral communication, moral reasoning and critical thinking. Employers value the liberal arts/engineering combination since students possess not only technical skills, but also the ability to write proposals and make presentations, and have a broader understanding of engineering systems and the role of technology in our changing society.
All of Notre Dame’s engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Notre Dame has a strong history with 3+2 engineering programs and has affiliations with sixteen schools, many of which have a similar size and background as King’s College.
Notre Dame and King’s College are both sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross and and share the same supporting values.
