North Carolina Central University to Offer New Dual-Degree Program

nccu_logoNorth Carolina Central University in Durham has announced that it has formed a partnership with North Carolina State University in Raleigh to offer a new dual-degree program. Under the agreement, students will spend their first-three undergraduate years at North Carolina Central taking a physics-based curriculum. The students will then spend two years taking courses in electrical engineering at North Carolina State University.

At the end of the five years of study, students who successfully complete the program will receive bachelor of science degrees in physics and electrical engineering. The new arrangement takes advantage of an overlap in required courses for the two majors so that students take only a few more courses to obtain a second degree.

The first students in the new dual-degree program are scheduled to begin at North Carolina Central this August.
