Engineering (Dual-Degree)

Berry College maintains a dual-degree program with the College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. As its name suggests, the dual-degree program leads to two baccalaureate degrees – one from Berry and one from Georgia Tech.

The dual-degree program

With the dual-degree program you can have the best of both worlds. You will gain the advantages and depth of a liberal arts education and acquire a world-class technical education.

As a dual-degree engineering student, you will begin your college career at Berry and complete six semesters (approximately three years). Then you will continue at Georgia Tech for two or two and a half years (four to five additional terms).

You will have the option of choosing a major or not choosing a major at Berry. If you don’t select a major, your Berry degree will be in dual-degree engineering. If you opt to choose a major, you might want to consider the Concentration II physics major that is specifically designed for dual-degree students and provides a strong background for a broad range of engineering specialties.

Other majors are possible and may be particularly appropriate for specific engineering specialties, such as chemical or computer engineering. These majors may require an extra semester at Berry and/or Georgia Tech.

Requirements

At Berry your education will include at least 93 semester hours in courses that include communication, health and physical education, behavioral and social sciences, humanities and fine arts, and mathematics and natural sciences.

For admission to Georgia Tech, Georgia residents must achieve a minimum Berry grade point average of 2.7 both overall and in math and science courses. (The GPA should be higher for out-of-state and international students.) You also need specific courses in mathematics, computer science and the natural sciences, as well as several general courses. Detailed information on the course requirements for Berry and Georgia Tech is available from the dual-degree coordinator, and more information is available on the Web at  http://www.berry.edu/academics/science/physics/dualdegree/

Interaction with engaged faculty

Faculty members at Berry are focused on exceptional teaching and are interested in getting to know their students. Our smaller class sizes provide a personalized, often firsthand, learning experience, and many students have the opportunity to work with faculty members on research projects.

At the same time, Berry’s faculty members are active, published researchers with varied interests. Physics faculty members, for example, conduct research in gamma-ray astronomy, chaos theory, fundamental symmetries, computational quantum mechanics and photometry.

Great facilities

Berry’s science and mathematics programs are housed in a state-of-the-art science center that was specifically designed to maximize opportunities for hands-on learning. The laboratories are ultramodern and designed to stimulate interactive learning. The classrooms are spacious and encourage direct faculty/student interaction.

A tradition of success

Berry’s dual-degree engineering students have been very successful when they make the transition from Berry to the Georgia Tech engineering program. We hear from both our students themselves and from officials at Georgia Tech that Berry students are well prepared to succeed. In fact, the program coordinator consistently rates them the best of Georgia Tech’s dual-degree students.
