Students participating in this program will be expected to complete all Presbyterian College general education requirements while in residence. In addition, students must complete 45 to 46 hours, including CHEM 101-101L and 102-102L; CSC 1231-1231L or 250; MATH 201, 202, 301, 302, and 401; PHYS 1500 or 1600; PHYS 1610, 2100, and 2600; and three hours chosen from PHYS 2900, 3100, or 3200.
Students entering a dual-degree program should be aware of stipulations from other institutions regarding transfer work, i.e., most institutions do not accept grades of “D” and some may not accept all of Presbyterian College’s general education requirements. After earning a minimum of 92 semester hours at PC, students enter an engineering program at Auburn University, Clemson University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of South Carolina, or Vanderbilt University and in two years earn a PC degree and an engineering degree from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, USC, or Vanderbilt.
Notes: If a student has taken general physics 1500 or physics with calculus 1600 from PC, or its equivalent at another school, before declaring the physics engineering dual degree major, s/he must pass a qualifying examination given by the Physics Department. A grade of “C-“ or higher in PHYS 1500 or its approved equivalent course is required to enroll in PHYS 1610. A grade of “C-“ or higher in PHYS 1610 or its approved equivalent is required to enroll in any upper division physics course and the student must pass a qualifying examination given by the Physics Department.
