The programs of Bachelors of Science in Engineering Physics or Engineering Science are dual-degree programs with Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kennesaw State University (KSU), and the University of North Dakota (UND).
This degree program provides the opportunity for a student to study for three years at Piedmont University and then transfer to either Georgia Tech or KSU. Upon completion of their studies, the student will receive a BS in Engineering from Georgia Tech or KSU as well as a BS in Engineering Physics or Engineering Science from Piedmont University. Students will spend one or two summers at UND for that program and receive degrees from both universities as well.
Because of the special nature of the dual-degree program, the baccalaureate degree will not be conferred by Piedmont University, Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State, or the University of North Dakota until all requirements established by both the involved institutions have been met satisfactorily.
They are designed for students who wish to receive a base of knowledge in physics and mathematics at Piedmont University before advancing to study a specific school of engineering at either Georgia Tech or Kennesaw State.
