For the Dual Degree Plan the student completes three years in Physics at Sam Houston State University and the curriculum in an engineering field at a university with a recognized accredited degree program in the chosen engineering field.
After successfully completing this program, the student receives two Bachelor of Science degrees:
- one in Physics from Sam Houston State University
- one in an engineering specialty from the university with the recognized accredited engineering degree program.
The applicable engineering specialties are:
- radiation protection engineering
For the chemical engineering option, a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry would be received from Sam Houston State University.
