Meredith College Offers Dual-Degree Program in Aerospace Engineering With North Carolina State University

Meredith College, a liberal arts educational institution for women in Raleigh, North Carolina, is now offering students the option to study aerospace engineering.

The Dual Degree Engineering Program is an agreement, first established in 2005, between Meredith College and North Carolina State University through which students simultaneously complete the academic requirements of both institutions. Students in this program earn two degrees in five years. Meredith students majoring in chemistry could earn a second bachelor’s degree in biological, biomedical, chemical, environmental, or textile engineering. Meredith students majoring in mathematics could earn a second degree in biological, biomedical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering. Now for the first time, students at Meredith College that are majoring in mathematics can earn a second bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering at North Carolina State University.

Students must request to participate in the Dual Degree Engineering Program upon their acceptance to Meredith College and must select their majors by the end of their first semester at Meredith College. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.25 or better for their first two semesters and a minimum of 3.0 thereafter at both institutions, and meet other requirements to continue enrollment in the program and be considered for admission to the College of Engineering.

The Meredith College Dual Degree Program in Engineering is under the direction of Jennifer Hontz, a professor of mathematics at the college. Dr. Hontz holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics education, a master’s degree in applied mathematics, and a Ph.D. in mathematics, all from North Carolina State University.
