The Voiland College of Engineering & Architecture offers dual-degree opportunities in engineering in partnership with other regionally accredited Washington baccalaureate institutions. Through completion of these partnerships students receive a baccalaureate engineering degree in their selected discipline from WSU and a degree from their original institution in their original major. Program requirements are as follows:

  • Students successfully complete the first three (3) years of a degree program, usually in Physics or Chemistry, and satisfy the requirements of the original institution’s department.
  • As a part of their coursework students complete all courses necessary to transfer into the 3rd year – junior level – engineering degree program of their choice.
  • As a part of their coursework students complete all courses necessary to satisfy the lower-division General Education Requirements1 of the original institution. Students provide a letter from the original institution certifying completion.
  • Students complete the WSU coursework necessary for completion of their selected degree program, as well as the following upper-division requirements:
    a. Initiation of a Junior Writing Portfolio2 by the end of their first semester at WSU. To this end, students should save examples of writing from coursework completed at the original institution, and obtain the required instructor sign-off prior to transfer, if possible.

  • Following WSU baccalaureate degree completion, students must contact the original institution and complete the process required to satisfy degree completion for the original degree program.
