The Dual-Degree Engineering Program at Berry College


Brief Description of the Program

Berry College maintains a dual-degree program with the College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In this program the student scheduled to attend Berry for approximately three years (six semesters). Then the student will transfer to Georgia Tech and take courses there for approximately two years (four, possibly five additional terms). At the end of that period, the student will have earned two baccalaureate degrees, one from Berry and one from Georgia Tech.

Under this program, students have the option of choosing a major or not choosing a major at Berry. Students choosing a major are encouraged to consider the Concentration II physics major that is well suited for dual-degree students and provides a strong background for a broad range of engineering specialties. Other majors are also possible. Certain ones may be particularly appropriate to a specific engineering specialty (e.g., chemical or computer engineering); however, these other majors may require an extra semester at Berry. If the student does not choose a major, the Berry degree will be in dual-degree engineering. The student is not limited in a choice of engineering specialty, although some specialties require certain courses at Berry (see below), and some may require an extra semester at the engineering institution.

For more information, please contact the dual-degree coordinator:

Georgia Tech Requirements

For a complete listing of Ga Tech requirements for each field of engineering please see the General Georgia Tech Dual Degree & RETP Admissions Requirements and Procedures document. For admission to Georgia Tech under the 3-2 program you must complete the 93 semester hours at Berry with a minimum GPA (both cumulative and in math/science classes) of 3.0 for U.S. citizens (international students should contact Georgia Tech's admissions office for GPA requirements). GPA is calculated using all college coursework, regardless of where it is taken, provided that the courses will transfer to Georgia Tech. You can find out about course transfer equivalencies by using the Georgia Tech Transfer Articulation database. Note that math courses below the level of calculus will not transfer (MAT 111 will transfer as a Management, not a Math, course). Also, grades lower than C- will not transfer to Georgia Tech. In addition to the courses listed above, the student must also take:

  1. Mathematics:
    • MAT 201
    • MAT 202
    • MAT 203
    • MAT 303
    • MAT 304
     
  2. Computer Science:
    • CSC 120
     
  3. Natural Sciences:
    • CHM 108
    • CHM 109
    • PHY 211
    • PHY 212
