Students who wish to combine study in chemistry with further study in chemical engineering may do so under the Clemson University-Lander University Engineering Dual Degree Program.

chemistry studentUnder this cooperative agreement students will spend the first three years of their college career at Lander University in a chemistry program of study and the remaining two years at Clemson University in chemical engineering.

A student who completes this five-year program of study will have had the experience of dividing his or her academic career between the liberal arts environment of a small university campus and the engineering climate of a large technically oriented university. This unique combination of study on two differently oriented campuses will provide a student with excellent engineering and chemistry training, complemented by study in the humanities and social sciences. Thus, a graduate from this dual degree program will be well trained to pursue a technical career strongly oriented to problems relevant to today’s society.

  • SENIOR YEAR: STUDENT TRANSFERS TO CLEMSON UNIVERSITY.
    Upon completion of the 3rd year at Lander, students will have completed 98 semester hours of coursework. However, students will have only completed 32 of the 42 hours of General Education requirements. In completing the Chemical Engineering degree at Clemson, 22 semester hours of Clemson coursework will be applied to satisfy the Lander required minimum of 120 semester hours needed for graduation. From those 22 hours, 10 semester hours must satisfy the remainder of the General Education requirements. Students must check with their advisor to make sure that the general education credits completed at Clemson satisfy the remainder of their Lander General Education requirements. In addition, students must complete the Clemson degree requirements for a BS in chemical engineering to obtain the BS degree in chemistry from Lander. This option is available ONLY to students who pursue a degree in CHEMICAL Engineering at Clemson.
  • Coursework must include at least 30 hours earned in 300 or above level courses, of which 12 hours must be in the major.
  • See the 4-year major guide for recommended order in which to take courses
