NC State and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke have established a joint undergraduate degree program that will allow students to spend three years at UNC Pembroke and two years at NC State and graduate with bachelor’s degrees from both institutions.

NC State Chancellor Dr. Randy Woodson and UNC Pembroke Chancellor Dr. Robin Gary Cummings made the partnership official during a signing ceremony on July 12.

Under the program, which launched in August, students will spend three years at UNC Pembroke and two at NC State and graduate with a bachelor’s degree in physics from UNC Pembroke and a bachelor’s degree in either electrical or mechanical engineering from NC State.

“This partnership is yet another step in the continued growth upon the existing relationships between UNC system campuses to improve higher education opportunities for North Carolina students,” Woodson said.

The College has similar dual-degree partnership programs with Elon University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina Central University and Meredith College.
