    Dual Degrees

    Students who want to pursue interdisciplinary interests in depth may wish to enroll in a dual degree program. There are no minimum semester hours required, but the require- ments for both degrees must be satisfied. To complete two degrees in an optimum time, students should consult with the Assistant Dean of Engineering Student Services Office at the earliest opportunity. Students will also be required to consult with the dean's office in the college from which the second degree is earned.

    The second degree may be earned at other four-year institutions, such as the other Regents schools in Kansas. Advisors from these schools will help plan programs commonly referred to as "3-2" degree programs. Students complete 3 years of course work at their institution and arrange to transfer a portion of the credit hours earned at K-State to complete the degree requirements at their institution. If properly planned and implemented, students will also complete requirements for a degree at K-State when the fifth year is completed. However, because about 66 percent of the students at engineering schools take five or more years to complete four-year programs, most of these dual degree programs take 51/2 to 6 years to complete. Popular combinations are:
    Engineering and business administration
    The management option is the most popular, but the option in marketing is an excellent combination for the engineering student planning a career in technical sales. Because of course sequence requirements, students should begin the dual degree program in their sophomore year.

    Instead of a dual degree, students with a 3.0 GPA or higher should consider an MBA, or the engineering management option of the M.S. degree in industrial engineering.

    Agricultural engineering and grain science and industry
    The two most popular options are feed science and management, and milling science and management.

    Construction science and architecture
    Students enrolled in architectural engineering and construction science and management programs that also earn a dual degree in architecture have additional opportunities in the building industry.

    Civil engineering and geology
    Students interested in specializing in foundation engineering are advised to complete the B.S. degree requirements in civil engineering plus the requirements to qualify for the B.S. degree in geology.

    Chemistry and chemical engineering
    In addition to the required courses in chemical engineering, interested students must take additional courses in chemistry and electives to qualify for the B.S. degree in chemistry.

    Electrical engineering and computer engineering
    This dual degree allows a person to function across a wider range of technical areas.

    Electrical engineering and mechanical engineering
    Some job opportunities in the fields of energy, controls, and heating and air conditioning require the combined background of these two areas.
