UGA Advantage: Double Dawgs

UGA Advantage: Double Dawgs

The Double Dawgs program was created to give ambitious and motivated students a competitive advantage in today’s knowledge economy. By earning both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in five years or less, students can save time and money while positioning themselves for success after graduation.

The College of Engineering offers eight Double Dawg Programs:

  • Agricultural Engineering - BS-MS
  • Biological Engineering - BS-MS
  • Biochemical Engineering - BS-MS
  • Environmental Engineering - BS-MS
  • Civil Engineering BS - MS Engineering with Civil Engineering Emphasis
  • Mechanical Engineering BS - MS Engineering with Mechanical Engineering Emphasis
  • Computer Systems Engineering BS - MS Engineering with ECE Emphasis
  • Electrical and Electronics Engineering BS - MS Engineering with ECE Emphasis

These programs allow BS engineering students engaged in undergraduate research to complete 12 hours of graduate coursework during their final undergraduate semesters, graduate with a BS, then complete their research and coursework for the MS, receiving both degrees in five years.

Eligibility

Applicants must:

  • Have a minimum overall UGA GPA of 3.0
  • Be on track to complete their BS degree by December 2020
  • Be considering completion of a Master's in your area of engineering after graduation 
  • Be currently engaged in research with a faculty member (or have firm plans to be)
