Physics Comprehensive - Engineering Emphasis

The 3+2 Engineering Foundations dual degree program is structured so students who spend three years in the dual-degree program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and two years in the College of Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be eligible to attain a bachelor’s degree in Physics from UNK and a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from UNL.

A strong understanding of physics forms the backbone of a solid engineering education, and the dual degree program addresses this need. While at UNK you will earn a bachelor's degree in Physics while also gaining a strong background in engineering. Students will take the recommended general courses in physics, chemistry and math before transferring to UNL or any ABET-accredited engineering school. A student can then specialize in a wide variety of engineering fields such as civil, electrical, mechanical, chemical or other intensive areas.
