The Engineering Dual Degree program is a program under the REPP whereby a student earns two bachelor’s degrees, one from Clayton State and one from Georgia Tech, in approximately five years.
Clayton State offers Dual Degree options in:
- Computer Science
- Integrative Studies
The Dual Degree program offers students the ability to explore an additional major before starting their engineering program. Pairing an engineering degree with a degree in Computer Science, Math or Chemistry can offer students more flexibility in the job market, allowing for a greater depth of knowledge in math, computer science, or chemistry than the typical engineering student.
Under the Dual Degree Program, students take approximately 95 credit hours of coursework at Clayton State in roughly 3 years.
If a student meets the REPP transfer requirements for Georgia Tech and is admitted to Georgia Tech, they can transfer to Georgia Tech to study the engineering field of their choice. Completion of the engineering degree takes approximately two years. At the conclusion of the program, the student earns a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Georgia Tech, and a bachelor’s degree in Math, Computer Science, or Chemistry from Clayton State.

Upon successful completion of CSU’s Dual Degree curriculum, students may be admitted to Georgia Tech to complete an Engineering Bachelor’s degree. Admission to Georgia Tech is not guaranteed.
In order to successfully transfer to Georgia Tech, Dual Degree students must:
- Apply for transfer to Georgia Tech
- Maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.3. High-demand engineering majors may require a higher GPA to be competitive. All attempts at all courses taken at all colleges attended are included in this GPA.
- Maintain a minimum Math/Science GPA of 3.3. High-demand engineering majors may require a higher GPA to be competitive. All attempts at all math courses at the level of Math 1501 and higher, and all natural science courses, taken at all colleges attended are included in this GPA.
- Have no more than 2 math or lab science courses required under the REPP in progress at the document deadline.
- Have been enrolled at Clayton State at least two semesters immediately preceding enrollment at Georgia Tech, i.e. Fall/Spring or Spring/Summer for a Fall GT enrollment.
- Have successfully completed the course requirements specified by Georgia Tech for the student’s intended engineering major, found at https://ceed.gatech.edu/admissions-requirements.
Engineering Major Programs at Georgia Tech
Students participating in the Dual Degree program have equal access to all GT engineering majors.
Georgia Tech offers the following engineering majors:
