Saint Michael’s College has an inter-institutional agreement with the University of Vermont (UVM) for a Dual Degree Program in Engineering. Students will complete three years of residency at Saint Michael’s College fulfilling the SMC CORE Curriculum requirements as well as foundational science, mathematics and engineering courses taken at both SMC and UVM.

The Program guarantees students who meet specified criteria (in terms of coursework and GPA) admission to UVM’s College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) for their final two years of study. Students may select any of the options in the Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Engineering Management, Mechanical Engineering and (multidisciplinary) Engineering programs at UVM. Upon successful completion of program and degree requirements, students will receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Engineering with a minor in Mathematics from Saint Michael’s College, and a Bachelor of Science degree in the appropriate engineering area from the University of Vermont.


Learning Outcomes:

An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
