“I had only planned to be at York College for two years; however, I began to think differently after seeing the strength of the Science department’s tenured faculty in my first year. The amount of material I learned in class settings of 15 students or less was amazing. After the second year it was evident to me that York was the place for me. ” Dr. Aaron Fletcher Class of 2002
“The professors at York have established an anastomosis between a competitive academic curriculum and a spiritually enriching experience.” — Dr. Jordan Sikes, Class of 2005

Dual Degree Engineering The Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics has partnered with several universities to offer students a Dual Degree in engineering. A student completes three years at York College, obtaining requisite credits in science, math, computer science, and general electives. The student then transfers to a partnering school to complete the final two years of the program with focused courses in engineering.

A Fellowship of Learning... A Community of Faith Dual Degree in Engineering
York College is partnering with several universities to offer a Dual Degree in engineering. In this program, you complete three years at YC, earning credits in science, math, computer science, and general education courses. Then you transfer to a partner school for two years of focused courses in engineering. You will graduate with two bachelor’s degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Science from York College and an engineering degree from the second college. Benefits
Graduates of the Dual Degree program are highly sought after, as they are liberally educated engineers. Dual Degree students possess strong communication and problem-solving skills, and a broad background in the humanities and social sciences, as well as high-quality technical education. Not only do you get to enjoy the benefits of attending a Christian college, but completing an engineering degree this way COSTS LESS, too!
The partner schools will offer a variety of engineering specializations including: • Electrical • Computer • Mechanical • Chemical • Civil • Environmental • Biomedical • Systems
After completing the course work at YC, the application process to the engineering department at the partner school is streamlined. A liaison advisor at YC and at partner colleges will assist you to assure that you complete proper prerequisites for the various types of engineering programs. You will work closely with your advisor to be sure that you complete the necessary classwork at YC so that you are able to complete the program in the promised time frame. The 3/2 program is designed for a smooth and easy transition between schools. If you have completed the proper courses at YC and your GPA is above a certain level, all you will need is a letter of recommendation from your YC advisor and a simple application. Dr. Terence Kite, professor of physics, directs the program at York College and is the student advisor. Dr. Kite worked on such a program at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif. for many years.
Course work you will complete at YC General education courses, Intro to Engineering, and courses specific to your planned engineering specialization must be completed, as well as: MATH • College Algebra/Trigonometry • Calculus I • Calculus II • Calculus III • Differential Equations • Linear Algebra PHYSICS • Engineering Physics I • Engineering Physics II • Modern Physics COMPUTER SCIENCE • Computer programing language (C++) “York may not have 400-seat lecture halls or fivestory libraries, but a student’s education consists of so much more than books and PowerPoints. I have come across so many professors and lecturers, and I am always impressed with the dedication York’s faculty has for the preparation of intelligent minds, and most importantly, intelligent hearts.” – Steve Meyer (Class of 2004) “York’s science department is fantastic! The faculty are so dedicated and teach beyond expectations. It’s hard work, but their classes are fun, informative, and challenging.” – Crystal Stoll (Class of 2005)
