What is a dual-degree engineering B.S.?

In a society built by engineers, on a planet governed by the forces of nature, engineering is the study of theoretical principles of physics applied in real-world applications. An understanding of applied physics and engineering is a critical part of any innovation in science and technology. Take your first steps by contacting admissions or reading more about how to apply.

Why study engineering at Furman?

Our signature approach to the liberal arts and sciences means you will work with professors who know your name, and get one-on-one instruction to learn the basics. You will have a stronger foundation than engineering students in other programs who don’t get personalized attention in their introductory courses. Plan a visit to Furman’s beautiful campus or start your application today.

How will you learn?

You’ll get to see theoretical concepts put into practice right away. Because our department does not have graduate students, our faculty relies on undergraduates, including first-year students, to initiate and conduct laboratory research. After three years at Furman, you will transfer to one of our partner schools ­ Clemson or Georgia Tech ­ to study engineering. When you complete the program in an additional two to three years, you will earn a Bachelor of Science in applied physics from Furman and a Bachelor of Science in engineering from our partner school.

What our students say
“Being a physics major was the best decision I made, hands down, and here's why: the physics department is the most supportive network I have made at Furman. The faculty has been there for me both academically and non-academically, and I will always remember and appreciate their support. "
– Shelby Walcott ’20
