Engineering Dual-Degree Program at the University of Notre Dame

Stonehill College and the University of Notre Dame have partnered to offer students a unique educational experience that gives them two degrees in five years.

Two Degrees in Five Years

The Notre Dame Engineering Dual-Degree program gives students the opportunity to study at both a selective liberal arts college and a nationally ranked research university. Through this initiative, students attend Stonehill for three years to earn a science degree in either chemistry, computer science, environmental science or physics, then transfer to The University of Notre Dame to earn a corresponding bachelor's degree in engineering.

Students may choose one of the following degree combinations:

  • B.A. in Chemistry/ B.S. in Chemical Engineering
  • B.A. in Computer Science/B.S. in Computer Engineering
  • B.S. in Environmental Science/B.S. in Environmental Engineering or Environmental Earth Science
  • B.A. in Physics/B.S. in Aerospace Engineering
  • B.A. in Physics/B.S. in Civil Engineering
  • B.A. in Physics/B.S. in Electrical Engineering
  • B.A. in Physics/B.S. in Mechanical Engineering

A Powerful Combination, a Competitive Advantage

By obtaining two degrees, students gain a more robust educational foundation that better prepares them for their graduate school ambitions and/or careers in engineering career plans.

Stonehill students gain knowledge and the ability to think logically, analytically and creatively under the umbrella of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Technical training is integrated seamlessly with the arts and sciences so that graduating science majors are not only superb scientists but also lifelong learners.

Both Stonehill and The University of Notre Dame are part of sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross, which values integrity and puts as much emphasis on education as on helping develop compassionate leaders and global thinkers.

A Broad Array of Advantages

  • A solid liberal arts degree and a strong engineering degree offer a more robust education
  • Two distinct programs better prepare you for your graduate school and career plans
  • A dual-degree offers increased leverage in employment negotiations
  • Two strong undergraduate research opportunities offer far more in-the-field research experience

More Research Opportunities

The combination of Stonehill’s and The University of Notre Dame’s renowned undergraduate research opportunities means students will have far more in-the-field research experience to support their integrated learning at both schools.
Stonehill’s faculty frequently conducts publishable research with students through the Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program.

In addition, The University of Notre Dame offers undergraduate opportunities for cutting-edge research in a variety of facilities across campus, from designing micro air vehicles to studying the degradation of organic contaminants in groundwater.
