Dual-Degree Engineering

The Engineering (ENGN) dual-degree program is established jointly with New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Rowan University and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. It is a five-year program designed for motivated students who are well prepared in mathematics and science and interested in a challenging college curriculum.

Because of the increased competition in the job marketplace, many of today’s college students are choosing to broaden their educational foundations by pursuing multifaceted career objectives such as minors along with majors, double majors or dual undergraduate degrees. This program provides you with two very marketable college degrees.


About the Program

The program begins with three years at Stockton and concludes with two years at NJIT, Rowan or Rutgers. It combines a strong foundation in science, mathematics and basic engineering and breadth in the liberal studies in the first three years at Stockton, with well-developed, in-depth technical courses in the last two years at NJIT, Rowan University or Rutgers. Student receives a BS degree in chemistry, mathematics or physics from Stockton at the end of the fourth year and a BS degree in engineering from Rutgers, Rowan or NJIT at the end of the program.

This unique opportunity in engineering education offers the best of both worlds. Stockton is a strong liberal arts school whose main emphasis is on excellence in teaching and where all classes – including entry level – are small and taught by faculty members, not graduate students. Stockton prepares you with solid training in mathematics, science and basic engineering. Stockton also provides you with a strong liberal studies component to broaden your intellectual scope, enhance your communication skills and help you acquire leadership qualities. Add to this the in-depth technical courses available at highly ranked engineering school such as N]IT, Rowan or Rutgers and the result is a unique undergraduate curriculum that develops highly qualified engineering professionals who are well equipped to meet the demands of a changing technological world.

Engineers are in very high demand in today’s high-tech world. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts an average growth rate in employment between 2014 and 2024 of 23% for biomedical engineers, -2% to 3% for chemical, computer, electrical and electronic engineers, 5% for mechanical engineers, 8% for civil engineers and 12% for environmental engineering. Opportunities for engineers are available in industries, government and academia.

Mechanical engineers are hired by industries concerned with the design and development of power plants, mechanical systems, vehicles, engines, machine parts, and conventional and alternate energy systems. Positions for electrical and electronics engineers are available in different areas such as the design and development of electrical devices, computers, communications and control systems.

Civil engineers are usually employed in areas such as design, planning and construction of new cities, highways, dams, and water and sewage systems. Positions for chemical engineers are available in pharmaceutical, food, pesticide, fertilizer and petroleum industries, and in pollution control and treatment. 

Biomedical engineers are hired by industries involved in the design and manufacturing of devices and equipment used in healthcare. There are also job opportunities for biomedical engineers in institutions involved in research on new medical technologies such as drug delivery systems, tissue engineering and artificial limbs and organs.

No, there is no separate application process for the program. In your Stockton application, select Applied Physics, Mathematics or Chemistry as your major and Engineering as a track.

During freshman orientation, inform your advisor of your interest. You will also need to fill out a special form early in your first semester at Stockton to declare the track. The form is available at Academic Advising.

Students in the program complete the mathematics, physics, chemistry, and general education course requirements for the engineering degree in addition to some basic engineering courses at Stockton in the first three years. These courses will be counted toward their Stockton degree as well as the engineering degree. At the end of the third year, qualified students in the program are automatically transferred to Rutgers, Rowan, or NJIT to complete the engineering curriculum. At the end of the fourth year, students in the program are qualified for the Bachelor in science degree from Stockton. The Bachelor (or Master) in engineering is awarded at the end of the program.

No, this dual-degree engineering program is offered only through Rutgers, Rowan and NJIT. It is established through articulation agreements that are signed by the involved schools. These schools are obliged to honor the terms and conditions of these agreements.

Courses in which a grade of C or better has been earned and are contained in the dual-degree curriculum will be accepted by each engineering school for its respective degree.

No, you do not need to declare an engineering field as soon as you start the program except I you are interested in chemical engineering. You have till the beginning of your second year in the program to select your engineering field.

No, you do not need to make a decision about your prospective engineering school now. You will have till the time of your transfer to the engineering school to decide which one you would like to go to. However, selecting an engineering school early may give you more flexibility in your choice of general education courses. Also keep in mind that not all engineering fields are provided by every one of the engineering schools participating in this program.

Qualified students in the program at Stockton will be automatically transferred after the third year of their study at Stockton to NJIT, Rowan or Rutgers. No new SAT or ACT scores and no entrance examinations are required. Early in the spring of the third year, qualified students in the program need to meet with the engineering coordinator to initiate the automatic transfer process as stated by the articulation agreements between Stockton and the participating engineering schools.

At the time of the automatic transfer the student must have a cumulative GPA of C+ or higher with at least a B average in science and mathematics in Stockton courses to be admitted to NJIT, and a cumulative GPA of B or higher with at least a B average in science and mathematics in Stockton courses to be admitted to Rutgers.
