Dual Degree Program in Engineering

Georgia Southwestern State University and The Georgia Institute of Technology offer a dual degree program that results in students who complete either a BS in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering to receive a BS in Mathematics from GSW. The dual degree student enrolls at Georgia Southwestern State University for approximately three years and then applies as a transfer student to Georgia Tech. Upon acceptance to Georgia Tech, the student then enrolls there for approximately two years. When all degree requirements for specific engineering degree at Georgia Tech have been met, and all degree requirements in mathematics at GSW are met, the student will earn bachelor degrees from both Georgia Southwestern and Georgia Tech. If a student who begins at GSW completes a degree in an engineering discipline other than civil, electrical or mechanical engineering, that student will not receive a second degree from GSW.

Regents’ Engineering Transfer Program (RETP)

Georgia Southwestern State University offers qualified students the opportunity to transfer to an engineering program of their choice at Georgia Tech through the Regents’ Engineering Transfer Program (RETP). In the RETP, students enroll for their first two years of course work at Georgia Southwestern, where they are able to complete all of the mathematics and science courses, as well as other core requirements and some of the engineering courses required in the first two years of the Georgia Tech curriculum. Students who successfully complete the RETP requirements at GSW may be accepted as transfer students to Georgia Tech and are able to continue their work toward completion of a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
