High Point University offers a 3-2 dual-degree program in engineering with Vanderbilt University and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). Students enrolled at High Point University and interested in a career in engineering, may, upon successful completion of an approved three-year program in pre-engineering curriculum, transfer to Vanderbilt or Virginia Tech to complete requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering. They will also receive a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree from High Point University. Students will apply to Vanderbilt or Virginia Tech after the completion of two of three years at High Point University. With the recommendation of High Point University and the successful completion of the three-year course of study and approved GPA, students will be assured of admission to one of the two schools. The completion of the course work at Vanderbilt or Virginia Tech will normally require two years.

As supplement to your academic advisor, the pre-engineering advisor will work one-on-one with you as well as offer you extracurricular and resume building opportunities. Our pre-engineering advisor will provide you with a structured three-year academic plan, as well as provide guidance with all matters related to transfers to Vanderbilt University or Virginia Tech.
