Dual-Degree Engineering


A path to two degrees.

How’s this for efficient? Earn two bachelor’s degrees in five years—getting a liberal arts foundation at Berry and engineering credentials from either Georgia Tech or Kennesaw State.

By starting at Berry, you’ll get small classes (20-30 students instead of hundreds at a large university), close mentorship from your professors, and the problem-solving and communication skills that will make you a sought-after engineer.

In the Lab

Join faculty in hands-on research that will set you apart in graduate school. We’ll get you into the lab early so that you can make the most of your three years at Berry.

Dual-Degree Engineering FACULTY

Dr. Todd Timberlake
Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Dr. Todd Timberlake

Dr. Todd Timberlake mentors and guides students through transferring to Georgia Tech or Kennesaw State. He also teaches courses on electronics and the mechanics of heat and sound and conducts research (which often involves students) on quantum chaos and strongly driven systems.

Kya Wiggins

Kya Wiggins ’22 pictures herself working as a mechanical or aerospace engineer, and Berry College helped her connect the dots to realize her vision. The physics major tapped into a network of opportunities for undergraduate research, accelerated learning and practical experience that will give her a competitive edge. “I want to better understand how the world works using scientific methods that I can apply to real-world problems,” she says.
