Engineering 3+2 Dual Degree Program

Fayetteville State University and North Carolina State University offer "3 + 2" Dual Degree Programs. Students can earn two Bachelor of Science degrees in about 5 years-a BS in Chemistry, Computer Science or Mathematics at FSU and a BS in Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering from NCSU.



Chemistry prepares students for careers as professional chemists, dentists, medical doctors, pharmacists, optometrists, and science educators, and for graduate or professional studies. This degree also can lead to earning a degree in chemical engineering.
Computer Science at FSU is accredited by CAC/ABET (the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc). This degree prepares students for careers as computer and information scientists, programmers, software engineers, systems analysts, database administrators, network and systems administrators, data communications analysts, and for graduate or professional studies. This degree also can lead to earning a degree in computer or electrical engineering.
Mathematics prepares students for careers as actuaries, operations research analysts, statisticians, economists, financial analysts, market and survey researchers, personal financial advisors, physicists and astronomers, and mathematics educators. This degree also can lead to earning a degree in civil engineering.


According to US News Best Colleges Rankings, the undergraduate engineering program at North Carolina State University ranks 34th nationally. Earning a degree from NCSU leads to a better chance in job market as well as graduate school application.

Admission Requirements

  • Applicants for the "3+2" Dual Degree Engineering Program must apply for admission to FSU and meet all requirements for unconditional admission.
  • Initially, applicants are admitted to FSU with the intent to pursue the dual degree program and will be advised by the FSU Engineering Program Coordinator about the curriculum plans agreed upon by FSU and NCSU.
  • Admitted students may be required to enroll in FSU Summer School immediately preceding the first year of study or in subsequent years to remain on track to transfer to NCSU.
  • At the end of the first year of study, FSU students should apply for official admission into the FSU/NCSU Dual Degree Engineering Program. Acceptance in the program is based on the student's Grade Point Average (GPA) in science and mathematics courses, which must be at least a 3.0.
  • Upon acceptance by NCSU, students will receive a welcome letter from the College of Engineering, further specifying the requirements for transition from FSU to NCSU.
  • Admitted students in the dual degree program will be required to enroll in courses based on the curriculum guide approved by FSU and NCSU. Any variation from the required courses must be pre-approved by the program coordinator and the appropriate department chairperson.
