Dr. A. Reamer, Dr. T. Black, advisors.

The Three-Plus-Two Physics and Electrical Engineering Program is a cooperative agreement between the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) Physics Program and the North Carolina State University (NCSU) Electrical Engineering Program. The program gives students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from North Carolina State University. Students must complete all coursework listed below to satisfy the Three-Plus-Two Program requirements. The UNCW phase of study can be completed in three years. If the student meets the transfer admission requirements for NCSU listed below, the student is accepted into the Electrical Engineering Program. This program can be completed in two years. UNCW will accept credits from NCSU to complete degree requirements at UNCW and NCSU will accept credits from UNCW to complete degree requirements at NCSU. Thus, the student receives a degree from UNCW and a degree from NCSU.

To complete the Three-Plus-Two Program, a student must complete the following courses at UNCW:

A student must finish the UNCW phase of study with an overall GPA of at least 3.00, earn at least a 2.00 GPA in any NCSU distance education courses taken, and have at least a 2.50 GPA in the last two calculus courses attempted to meet NCSU’s transfer admission requirements. Students in this program will be advised jointly by an advisor in the Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography and the director of the Engineering Program at UNCW to assure completion of the correct requirements for both programs.
