Special arrangements have been made by which an undergraduate student may attend Georgetown College for three years and the University of Kentucky for two years and receive degrees from both the institutions. After completing the requirements of both institutions, the student will be awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Engineering Arts from Georgetown College and one of the following degrees from the University of Kentucky: Bachelor of Science in Agricultural, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering, Material or Mining Engineering.
In all cases Dual-Degree students must:
Students matriculating to the University of Kentucky are automatically admitted to pre-engineering but will need to be admitted for engineering standing in an engineering department. The conditions for being admitted to an engineering department vary from department to department and are continually changing. The student should see an advisor involved with the engineering program for details.
Students planning to finish at the University of Kentucky must take the following courses at Georgetown College to complete the Engineering Arts major. Students must complete all courses listed in the first group and those courses listed in one of the subgroups below corresponding to the desired UK degree.
University of Kentucky College of Engineering (All)
University of Kentucky Agricultural Engineering
University of Kentucky Chemical Engineering
University of Kentucky Civil Engineering
University of Kentucky Electrical Engineering
University of Kentucky Mechanical Engineering
Depending upon the particular engineering program chosen by the student at the University of Kentucky, there will sometimes be additional courses needed in order that the student can be accepted for Engineering Standing in the department chosen by the student. As of this writing that would include CME 200 in Chemical Engineering and EE 221, EE 222, and EE 280 in Electrical Engineering. There may also be certain engineering courses that are pre-requisites to more advanced engineering courses the student may wish to take. To assure a timely progression in the studentâ€™s chosen program, the student may wish to take some of these courses during the summer.
