Course Information

The Single Degree program usually requires more than four years to complete the degree.

A Dual-Degree Program is available for students who desire to earn two bachelor's degrees, a mathematics or science degree from VSU and an engineering degree from Georgia Tech. This program should be carefully planned and usually requires more than five years to complete.
