Lander’s engineering dual degree program, offered in cooperation with Clemson University’s prestigious College of Engineering and Science, allows you to earn two very marketable degrees from two excellent schools.

math student in classThis cooperative program enables you to reap the benefits of attending both a small, liberal arts school and a large, technically oriented university and receive two bachelor’s degrees, one from each institution.

In this course of study, you will spend three years at Lander majoring in mathematics. Then you begin two years of study at Clemson in an engineering field of your choice.

Math majors at Lander may choose to enter any of the following engineering degree programs at Clemson: computer, ceramic and materials, civil, electrical, industrial or mechanical.
