TWU-UNT dual option

UNT and Texas Woman’s University have joined forces so that students can attend both universities. They can simultaneously receive bachelor’s degrees from both schools.

The purpose of this unique agreement is to establish a dual degree program between the University of North Texas on behalf of its College of Engineering and the Texas Woman’s University on behalf of its College of Arts and Science. The agreement will facilitate a collaborative working relationship between the departments at TWU and UNT.

The dual degree program in mathematics and engineering combines the strengths of Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and University of North Texas (UNT) to permit students to earn two degrees simultaneously while preparing for a professional career in engineering.

The recommended course of study is designed to enable completion of the degrees in four years. After completion of degree requirements, students will receive the Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from TWU and the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical/Mechanical and Energy/Materials Science and Engineering from UNT. It is also possible for students to obtain a degree in Materials Science and Engineering from UNT, while getting a degree in Chemistry from TWU.

Our specific aim at UNT is to encourage women to study engineering and grow professionally to attain leadership positions in industry. Please see the UNT course catalog for more specific requirements.
