The School of Computing and Engineering collaborates with other institutions in our dual-degree program which leads to undergraduate degrees in both a liberal arts and sciences major and a professional engineering, computer science or information technology degree. Students enter UMKC SCE following three (or four) years at their first institution. Students who follow the guidelines and meet the admission requirements will earn a degree from their first institution and a degree from UMKC following two years of study at SCE.
Students who complete the dual degree program experience the benefits of a liberal arts and sciences education, allowing them to become better communicators, develop strong study skills and explore additional academic interests, while also finishing a professional degree program.
- Completion of a minimum of 60 credit hours of coursework
- Cumulative GPA greater than 3.00
Students who are interested in the dual degree program should consult the SCE website and discuss the curriculum requirements with their home institution to be sure they are taking the correct coursework. Every program is different, depending on course offerings and general education requirements, so it is important for students interested in these programs to plan ahead.
