Program Description

Edward Waters College (EWC) is in partnership with Florida A & M University – Florida State University (FAMU-FSU) College of Engineering, University of Central Florida (UCF) and University of North Florida, College of Engineering to provide the Dual Degree Engineering Program at EWC. The Dual Degree Math/Engineering Program was initially supported by the Department of the Army, U. S. Army Research, and the Development and Engineering Command Acquisition Center. With this partnership, a student matriculates three or four years at EWC and two years at UNF, FAMU-FSU College of Engineering or at UCF College of Engineering.

A student will receive 111 to 115 credit hours in major and supportive courses (73 hours) along with General Education Courses (38 – 40 hours) at EWC during the first three or four years. Students may choose to complete two to three years of study at the universities listed above to earn additional credit hours in engineering discipline. Number credit hours vary depending on the university selected. Please consult with the department chair to obtain more information regarding the number of credit hours required.

In order to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Edward Waters College, students must transfer 12 credit hours from UNF or FAMU-FSU back to EWC to fulfill the elective course requirement. Total of 123 – 125 hours are needed to obtain BS degree in Mathematics from EWC. Students who complete the 123 – 125 hours at EWC (approximately in four years) may apply for graduation in their fourth year and proceed to UNF or FAMU-FSU to obtain their degree in Engineering. Transferring any credits back to EWC from UNF or FAMU-FSU is not necessary for those who have completed 123 – 125 hours at EWC.

Upon completion of the Dual Degree Program, the student receives a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics from Edward Waters College and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering from either Florida A & M University-Florida State University or from University of Central Florida. The length of the Program is approximately five to six years.
