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:

  • Have a minimum of ninety-six semester hours credited at Georgetown College.
  • Satisfy the NEXUS program requirement.
  • Satisfy the Georgetown College Foundations and Core requirements.
  • Take at Georgetown College those courses specified from the list(s) below that correspond to the degree sought at the University of Kentucky. (Note that some of the Georgetown College Foundations and Core requirements will be satisfied by courses on these lists. The courses on these lists are chosen to satisfy requirements at the University of Kentucky.)
  • Have your final Georgetown College transcript sent to the University of Kentucky (this is part of the application process to the University of Kentucky Engineering Program which effectively treats Georgetown College students as transfer students).
  • Pass the comprehensive exam. The chemical engineering comprehensive is in math, chemistry, and physics. All other engineering comprehensives are in math and physics.
  • Complete the chosen degree at the University of Kentucky.
  • Have your final University of Kentucky transcript sent back to Georgetown College’s registrar’s office and apply for Georgetown College graduation.

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.

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 student’s chosen program, the student may wish to take some of these courses during the summer.
