Partnership with UTA Results in New Engineering Degree

The University of Dallas has signed a letter of intent to offer an engineering dual degree program with the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). The agreement will make it possible for UD students to earn a bachelor of arts degree in physics from UD and bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from UTA.

Engineering majors will still be required to complete the university's rigorous Core curriculum as part of the suggested 172 credit hour curriculum, which can be completed in five years. A unique feature of the new program is that students will take courses at both schools throughout the five year program. Students will be granted both degrees after they have completed both universities' degree requirements.

The first students are expected to enroll in the program beginning next fall.

"We knew our students were interested in engineering, so we found a way to meet that interest." said Charles W. Eaker, dean of the Constantin College of Liberal Arts. "Because of this program's unique structure, our students will be able to take engineering courses in all five years, which is a very powerful thing. They will begin thinking of themselves as engineers as early as their freshman year."

"This agreement is a win-win, with students being the beneficiaries," said Jean-Pierre Bardet, dean of the UTA College of Engineering. "That's the true spirit of this partnership, that we do what will most benefit our students."
